PALFINGER: Partnership on autonomous systems to set new standards
|PALFINGER announces a new collaboration with Ammann, Prinoth, Rosenbauer and TTControl as part of the Autonomous Operation Cluster (AOC). Together they start developing key technologies for off-highway applications based on computer vision and artificial intelligence.
The biggest challenge for technology companies is to create smart solutions for difficult off-road operations such as firefighting operations and snow removal. For this reason, the cross-industry collaboration Autonomous Operation Cluster (AOC) aims to accelerate the development of advanced assistance functions to ease operators’ jobs, increase productivity and create more safety. As an enabler for autonomous operation functions, the AOC will address smart and autonomous operation of road construction equipment and off-highway applications such as cranes, fire-fighting equipment, and snow groomers. In these sectors, computer vision- and artificial intelligence-based solutions assist precise detection of objects and processing of information from the surrounding environment. The collaboration with AOC is part of the ACES Program for Autonomous, Connected and Eco-Efficient Solutions, a core element of PALFINGER’s overall digitization strategy.
Go digital, go smart
Synergy effects through knowledge sharing
In 2022, the partners of the AOC will define a technological solution and develop the first prototypes. Based on the specific use cases, further application implementations will then be continued in 2023.
