Driverless Trucks

Realised 2001 — In the first project of this kind FOX has automated two Mercedes-Benz for UZIN, Ulm, Germany. The trucks are guided by transponders within the ground. This method allows accuracies of 1 cm to be achieved at a speed of 5 km/h. The vehicles are driving forward and backward in both directions alternately. For this project FOX has won several awards.
