Cybernet Systems Corporation, a leading defense, robotics, engineering, cyber security and simulation systems development company, today announced a patent pending for automated warehousing systems built around fully automated near-human driver capable robotic forklifts. The technology demonstrated to the US Army in November of last year at Toole Army Depot in Utah enables fully automated and mixed automation warehouse applications where multiple driverless forklifts work together with man-driven fork trucks safely. This effort grows from prior work the company has completed implementing automated lift trucks for ammunition handling and Unit-to-Unit Autonomous Resupply Vehicles for the Army based on its DARPA Urban Challenge automation kits. Additional technology in the line also enables driverless vehicles to operate in inclement weather conditions including snow, rain, dust, fog, and smoke. This technology was developed as a spin-off of driverless pallet delivery truck testing performed for the US Army during the 2013 and 2014 cold weather season.
