This article discusses how automated guided vehicles have advanced from simple materials handlers to intelligent autonomous robots.
IDTechEx has recently seen competitors joining hands and forming some unlikely-sounding alliances to reduce the cost of autonomous driving development, as well as to share resources and capabilities. In July 2019, BMW Group signed a long-term strategic cooperation with rival company Daimler AG that begins with bringing Level 4 capability to market in the mid-2020s.
The on-water demonstrations took place aboard the world‚Äôs first autonomous spill response vessel ‚Äì a Vigor/Kvichak Marine Industries-built skimmer boat, owned by Marine Spill Response Corp. (MSRC) ‚Äì before a live audience of MARAD, government, naval, international, environmental and industry representatives.
By Jonathan Wilkins, EU Automation The logistics and supply chain sector has been inundated with new and novel transport technologies in the past two years, however, experts don‚Äôt expect many of these technologies to be widely available for another 5-10. This article explains why parts suppliers may be better served by focusing on reducing lead-times to same-day delivery.
Rakuten Super Logistics (RSL) has deployed inVia‚Äôs autonomous warehouse robotics technology within its Nevada operations. Rakuten Super Logistics (RSL) is a national e-commerce order fulfillment company that has been working on order fulfillment technology since 2001.
By Jonathan Wilkins, EU Automation In the 1993 science fiction film, Jurassic Park, visitors could take a tour in an autonomous Ford Explorer that used tracks on the ground to navigate. This was a good prediction of future technological advancements, but the autonomous vehicles of today are far more advanced than the Jurassic Explorer. This article explains how autonomous vehicles are beginning to transform the manufacturing industry.
ABB will provide its Heavy Vehicle Chargers (HVC) 300P for the forthcoming project to deliver two autonomous driving electric buses for the island by the beginning of 2019.
The companies are leveraging their expertise in the field of Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS), sensor fusion, Hardware in the Loop (HiL), V2X communication, GNSS simulation and data management to provide a one stop solution for fully autonomous vehicles.
