On December 5, 2023 Intralogistics specialist Linde Material Handling (MH) and the Aschaffenburg University of Applied Sciences (UAS) presented the results of the research project “KAnIS – Cooperative Autonomous Intralogistics Systems” with live demonstrations on the test site at the Linde plant in Aschaffenburg. In several subprojects, solutions were developed for the demanding applications of autonomous counterbalanced forklifts, which transport loads both indoors and outdoors. One focus was on the cooperative behaviour of these vehicles that exchange information in real time via a 5G network and an edge server and can warn each other of obstacles. The project, which ran for almost four years, was funded with approximately 2.8 million euros as part of the Free State of Bavaria’s “Information and Communication Technology” R&D program.
