AI-based Navigation

W2MO navigation is based on W2MO RTLS.

W2MO RTLS provides the absolute position of all objects – transporters, AGVs, persons, .. – in the working area. This comprehensive, holistic knowledge about what is going on makes W2MO navigation unique. All other AGVs or forklifts only know what happens around them, they do not have this global overview. Because W2MO navigation has the best possible knowledge about the environment it offers the best possible navigation (and fleet management system).

Control computers use the position information and the W2MO RTLS to calculate the paths of the AGVs and send the control and steering commands.

People or other vehicles are detected and possible collisions are identified early and thus avoided. All legal safety equipment is on board, too.

The W2MO navigation can be used for all kind of AGVs. Integration is easy and there are open, standardized interfaces. Any producer of AGVs is welcome to use the W2MO navigation – please contact us!

The standardized, flexible autonomous pallet transport robot – in cooperation with Pixel Robotics

Autonomous floor-to-floor transport robot developed and manufactured by Pixel Robotics:

  • Up to 1.3 t payload, 1.5 m/s (max. speed adjustable)
  • Li-Io batteries – operation 1 or 2 shifts
  • Automatic driving to loading station
  • Legal safety equipment: Sick safety scanner front / rear
  • Price per vehicle app. 45.000 €
  • All sensor technology: cooperation between ceiling recognition units and 3D cameras with NVIDIA XAVIER on the vehicle
  • In total more than 12 cameras on the vehicle
  • Robust construction which works best even in a "rough" logistics environment
  • For added safety: front/rear cameras check the environment and recognize objects which are overseen by the legal safety scanners

Many features of the W2MO Digital Twin support the powerful operation of autonomous transport robots

  • Optimized route planning based on real-time information on obstacles and the load situation in the warehouse
  • Innovative algorithms for calculating an efficient combination of orders in a tour of the robot
  • Use of combinatorial methods from mathematical optimization for the calculation of an optimal product placement for load balancing in the warehouse
  • 3D pack algorithms for efficient loading of vehicles

Due to the full integration of W2MO, a multitude of optimization algorithms are available for the robot. Not only the 3D model and the tracking functionalities for all transporters may be used, but also sophisticated mathematical methods for the calculation of the optimized tours and loads for each robot. In addition, optimal product placement also makes an important contribution to efficient operations with a guided vehicle system. (See "Intelligent Algorithms" for additional details).

Modular concept for flexible adjustments

    Option 1: Picking cart from standard components
  • Integrated in a flexible modular system
  • High-quality components such as Maxon drive and Sick safety sensor
  • Battery of your choice with different charging options
  • Easily adjustable profile frame
  • Pneumatic wheels for good driving characteristics even on rough or uneven surfaces
    Option 2: Customer-specific transporter
  • Flexible, customized development of all components
  • Possible integration of various additional components, such as lifting table, gripper arms, etc.
  • Example 1: Transport of goods between production locations with 900 kg payload and accuracy in the millimeter range
  • Example 2: Transport of pallets or mesh boxes on rolls with separate load securing

Depending on the requirements, different options are available for the design of the vehicle. On the one hand, this includes picking carts that are assembled from high-quality, standardized components. The transporters are equipped with pneumatic wheels so that there are no special floor quality requirements. The modularized concept allows for the exact design of a vehicle. On the other hand, customized one-off productions with an adapted development of all components are also possible. There are practically no limits to the individual design.

The robot can immediately continue driving automatically from any position. The vehicle can also be tracked during manual operation, if a worker pushes the car. Automated driving and manual pushing can be combined in any way.

The system can be designed as redundant as required, i.e. several registration units can monitor the same area. An integrated face pixelation system ensures the protection of personal privacy. There is no excessive load on the network, as only a small bandwidth of about 50 Kbit/s is required per vehicle.
