Audi launches "Paula", an automated guided vehicle for modular assembly

(C) Audi AG

At the TechDay Smart Factory an automated guided vehicle (AGV), called "Paula", has been presented by Audi. The Audi AGV is equipped with a free navigation unit, which allows the automated, autonomous execution of freely configurable missions. The transfer of function and software development procedures from the fields of automotive safety and assisted/automated driving resulted in an extremely efficient and effective in-house development. Also worth mentioning and trend-setting is the layout and constitution for self organizing swarm intelligence. Further details can be found here in Encounter Smart Factory 2017 at page 28 and following: "Paula on Tour".
