Flexible intralogistics solutions are basic components to enable classic manufacturing companies to compete in dynamic and global production networks. Developments in the field of autonomous road traffic technology and the increasing availability of cost-efficient sensors allow the economic use of autonomous systems in various industrial sectors. One of the subareas of autonomous systems with economic and technological potential is the intralogistics material supply with driverless transport systems. While the usage between buildings of such systems is not yet economically feasible, development of cost-efficient sensors from other markets are opening up new approaches in this area of operation. Localization and navigation, which must work seamlessly in mixed indoor and outdoor usage scenarios, are particularly critical to the success of autonomous systems.
In this paper, a solution for the localization and navigation of autonomous driverless transport systems in a mixed indoor and outdoor scenario is proposed. It focuses on the use of cost-efficient sensors to enable a mostly infrastructure-independent localization of each system. The proposed solution is validated and a first approach for a dynamic fusion of localization data is done.
