Robot research for efficient warehouse systems

Researchers at Halmstad University have, in collaboration with three industrial partners, developed systems for automated guided vehicles so that they can become more intelligent, safe and flexible – which in turn will lead to a more efficient warehouse management.

The project, called Automatic Inventory and Mapping of Stock (AIMS), started four years ago. The research has been done in collaboration with Center for Applied Intelligent Systems Research (CAISR) at Halmstad University, Toyota Material Handling, Kollmorgen and Optronic. The project has led to continued cooperation between the involved parties in order to further develop and improve the automated guided vehicles.

The goal of the project is to build a robotic system that can make a warehouse inventory. We want the robot to enter the warehouse, create a map and then tell us what the warehouse contains.
