Palfinger announces a new collaboration with Ammann, Prinoth, Rosenbauer and TTControl as part of the Autonomous Operation Cluster (AOC). It aims to develop key technologies for off-road applications based on computer vision and artificial intelligence.
The Autonomous Operation Cluster (AOC) cross-industry collaboration aims to accelerate the development of advanced assistance functions to facilitate the work of operators, increase productivity and create more safety. As an enabler of autonomous operation functions, the AOC will address intelligent, autonomous operation of road construction equipment and off-road applications such as cranes, firefighting equipment and snow groomers. In these sectors, solutions based on computer vision and artificial intelligence help in the precise detection of objects and the processing of information from the surrounding environment. The collaboration with AOC is part of the ACES program for Autonomous.
Switch to digital
In line with its two principles “Go for Solutions” and “Go Digital”, Palfinger wants to create its own business model for digital platforms in the future. “Developing common technologies together and sharing critical computer vision and artificial intelligence capabilities in an advanced development environment will enable Palfinger and all AOC partners to accelerate time to market and leverage synergies in the development of intelligent lifting solutions. In line with our Palfinger strategy, we provide digital assistance and autonomous operating functions that maximize operational efficiency, increase operational safety and generate additional value by seamlessly integrating our smart lifting solutions into our digital ecosystems. clients “says Andreas Hille.
The main initiator of the AOC is technology company TTControl, a leading provider of security control systems, rugged displays and connectivity as well as IoT solutions for mobile machinery and off-road vehicles. Roberto Ferrari, Senior Vice President Service & Operations at TTControl, points out: “TTControl will support this game-changing company with its advanced knowledge of electronic architectures and expertise in computer vision and artificial intelligence. With PALFINGER, we share the same interests in terms of increasing the reliability, comfort and safety of our solutions and already work closely together in other business areas. Together, we can create the next generation of automation and autonomy capabilities in the mobile and off-road machinery industries. »
In 2022, the AOC partners will define a technological solution and develop the first prototypes. Based on the specific use cases, further application implementations will then continue into 2023.
