Autonomous mobile manipulators allow to provide mobility and flexibility of the production lines. This is interesting in particular to provide flexibility to production shopfloors, assembly lines, supplying/logistic means, etc. This technology and exploitable result can have impact in the automation of intra-logistics of a production plant: Either as a direct application of the project results: providing mobility to an industrial manipulator, and thus allowing strong flexibility of the factory layout, easy reconfiguration and reduction of the infrastructure initial costs. Or as a spin-off exploitation, to provide omnidirectional autonomous navigation as a new feature for industrial AGV. The solution developed in this project: Autonomous navigation is provided to platform without any modification to the infrastructure: the mobile platform has sensors that allows it to perceive the environment, generate a map, locate itself, generate a desired path to reach a target destination, detect and avoid obstacles and thus, as a consequence move safely in complete autonomy in the shopfloor.
