PAN-Robots Plug & Navigate Robots for smart factories 

Project objective is to develop, demonstrate and validate a generic automation system for factory logistics in modern factories based on advanced Automated Guided Vehicles (AGV). Today, the use of AGV’s in factory logistics is not well integrated. The use of forklifts results in low efficiency, high energy consumption and the operation is not safe for workers. The PAN-Robots consortium stresses that the use of AGVs in factory operations will lead to: Higher flexibility, Cost efficient logistics, Low energy consumption and Enhanced work safety.

PAN-Robots has been funded under the 7th Framework Programme, FoF-ICT-2011.7.1
