Lehrte, February 7th 2013 — Driverless and accident free — safe autonomous logistics and transport vehicles are the goal of the joint project SaLsA, where Götting is the coordinator. In order to enhance the conventional safety concept the data of the vehicle sensors is combined with stationary sensors using a sensor fusion.
The stationary sensors send there data to the vehicle that then can adjust its speed or avoids obstacles. This enables the fast and safe collective operation of driverless vehicles in a working environment with external traffic outside of production halls and depots.
The challenging part is the integration of the data from the distributed sensors to build a meaningful and complete model. Then suitable simulation methods are applied real-time for the prediction of system states. In the future these technologies can be used for various applications, e.g. the automation of ground conveyors, tractors and people movers.
Part of the public technology program AUTONOMIK — Autonome und simulationsbasierte Systeme für den Mittelstand, funded by the The Federal Ministry of Economics and Technology based on a resolution of the German Parliament.
