Automated guided vehicles
|Project title||Mobile human-computer interaction for commissioning and controlling of automated guided vehicles (MobiMMI)|
|Project duration||01.01.2018 – 31.12.2019|
The operation of unsteady conveyors is currently done manually e.g. with forklift trucks or fully automated with automated transport vehicles (AGV). Compared to manual unsteady conveyors, AGVs are characterized by a lower accident rate, faster processing of orders and a reduced wear due to incorrect operation. They make a decisive contribution to lower operating costs for SMEs.
The disadvantage of using AGVs is its behavior in critical operating situations such as e.g. the storage at undefined plate positions. While the operator of a forklift truck can react individually to these situations, it is not possible for an AGV to solve these situations independently.
The goal of this research project is the development of a mobile system for speech- and gesture-based human-computer interaction to enable intervention in critical operating situations. In this way, the more economical operation of an AGV can be used while avoiding unwanted behavior.
