Based on inertial and visual sensors, this transport system autonomously moves through the warehouse and knows its own position in space. The differential drive allows this robot to move forward and backward and to rotate. In detecting obstacles, the system uses laser technology at the front and ultrasound technology at the rear. Both the front and rear are equipped with one emergency stop button each. When the battery is low, the vehicle automatically recharges itself and then returns to work.
Statement by the Jury
Complex on the inside, compact on the outside – the sophisticated design of this automated guided vehicle conveys a high degree of reliability and appeal.
