AUTOMATION OF END Of LINE PRODUCTION
Embotech cooperates with perception partner Seoul Robotics to develop cutting-edge technology for production; automating functions for logistics and assembly processes. Production efficiency is one of the core competitive advantages of any OEM. There is one area in vehicle production that has not been automated yet, and this is driving the cars off the assembly line and into the
logistics area, where they are loaded on trucks and trains. This is still a manual process. Next-generation vehicles will be fully autonomous within facilities that are equipped with V2X communication and Lidar technology, without requiring any costly sensor or computer hardware on the vehicles themselves.
MULTI-VEHICLE AUTOMATION IN LOGISTIC CENTRES
The simulation video shows an example of the coordination of various vehicles in a complex environment. Although this is only a simulation, the challenge of coordinating multiple dynamic vehicles is clear. In reality, expensive sensors such as Lidars are installed in the infrastructure. A perception system, able to generate an environment model, runs in a cloud server.
“Working with Embotech’s team has been a great pleasure both for our core logistics business and for demanding events. Embotech has been able to work around the clock together with the Einride team to meet our tight deadlines for this record breaking feat. The fast and efficient communication, combined with the powerful and intuitive to use PRODRIVER software has allowed us to start testing on real vehicles within days of project start. A great driver perfectly matched with a great vehicle is how you set a record”
