The award work goes on. After launching last march 2022 a new TractEasy demo, at the Daimler AG truck assembly plant in Wörth, the AWARD Project is replicating such succesful event at the Easy Mile validation site next 30th of May near Toulouse, France.
For those who are new to the vehicle, it uses an innovative sensor set to navigate safely and reliably. EasyMile’s algorithm connects all data that the sensor set records and combines them with GPS data. With the help of this data, the vehicle orientates itself with centimeter-precision on the extensive production site in mixed traffic conditions. On the software side, the tow tractor also offers an interface for integration into all common warehouse management systems so that operations can be monitored and controlled remotely at any time, allowing flexible material handling 24/7.
During the trials, TractEasy transports parts and material between two points and operates outdoors, even in short public routes. This is a major step forward for the industry as conventional AGVs (Automated Guided Vehicles) are tied to indoor operations. At the Wörth site, the tow tractor operated at 10 km/h and tows up to 14t.
In order to ensure seamless integration into the factory environment and the logistics process, the otherwise driverless vehicle is initially being supervised by a certified employee to ensure safety of all. TractEasy is currently in pilot operations and covers two shifts per day.
