It is a fact that automation and digitalization brought a huge benefit to the production lines on the factory floor. The same technologies were also used to automate efficiently the warehouses for components and semi-finished goods as well as the finished ones. However one observe a significant amount of manual handling within the intra-logistics between semi-finished to production and end of line and finished good warehousing prior to shipment. AGV's have replaced in some places the manual cart but the inflexibility of such solutions have opened the way to the next generation of mobile robotics: the Autonomous Intelligent Vehicles. The latter relies on a novel intelligent and dynamic navigation algorithm to travel in a safe way along an optimized path. There is absolutely no need to modify the workspace or install markers or sensors along the path. The AIV can also function as a fleet within dedicated fleet management software to optimize the flow of goods and operational efficiency.
