Lot Summary

With a priority date of 2013, this portfolio offers benefits for driverless vehicles and warehousing and inventory systems, including:

1. A system for automated inventory management and material handling. Inventory requests to place palletized material into storage at a specified lot location or retrieve palletized material from a specified lot are resolved into missions for autonomous fork trucks, equivalent mobile platforms, or manual fork truck drivers (and their equipment) that are autonomously or manually executed to effect the request. Automated trucks plan their own movements to execute the mission over the warehouse aisles or roadways sharing this space with manually driven trucks. Automated units drive to planned speed limits, manage their loads (stability control), stop, go, and merge at intersections according to human driving rules, use on-board sensors to identify static and dynamic obstacles, and human traffic, and either avoid them or stop until the potential collision risk is removed.
