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 combines 2 major Key enabling features: The mobility of the platform is omnidirectional, meaning that the robot can move in all the directions and rotate about himself at anytime. This is particularly important for areas where available space is limited and maneuverability is a strong requirement.
