Seat, autonomous drones along the production line of the Martorell factory [VIDEO]

Experimentation project for the transport of components.  As part of an industrial transformation process in which innovation plays a fundamental role, Seat is experimenting with the use of an autonomous drone that flies over the production lines of the Martorell plant, transporting components from one point to another of the plant. .  Vertical mobility autonomy that speeds up operations The project, currently in the testing phase, which aims to explore the possibilities of using drones in logistics, is the result of the collaboration between Seat and Eurecat, the Technological Center of Catalonia. “We want to understand the benefits of autonomous vertical mobility to free up floor space and move lightweight components quickly, cleanly and efficiently. Thus, in the near future the drones could autonomously transport parts directly to the line ”explains Alba Gavilán, head of Digital Execution & Delivery within the production strategy division.  The project is designed to be applied to an entire fleet of drones programmed to fly autonomously, i.e. without the need for remote control. To move around the plant, the drones have a sensor system capable of scanning the characteristics of the floor.    All autonomous robots that will be increasingly integrated with each other At the Martorell plant there are already several groups of robots that move independently within the departments: AGVs (self-driving vehicles), AMRs (autonomous mobile robots) and drones that fly in outdoor areas.   For the future, the focus is on a high degree of integration between the drones that move outside and those that move inside the plant, as explained by Jorge Luis Martinez, head of logistics innovation at Seat: "We will be able to connect the most close directly to the plant, extending the supply chain to the production line; in this way we could do without warehouses for some components ".
