Since 2019 KAMAZ will launch unmanned transportation in the enterprise


KAMAZ is preparing to launch an experimental route of in-house logistics transportation, within which the cabs from the press-frame to the vehicle plant will be transported by unmanned trucks. As the press service of KAMAZ informs, the project bears the working title "Odyssey", and it was not chosen by chance: an unmanned vehicle is oriented to leave and return to the same place. For the movement, existing intra-KAMAZ roads will be used. It is planned to create a dispatcher post for remote control in case of need and control of traffic.

"At the press-frame plant, the vehicle is loaded with cabins with the help of a loader, it receives a command, drives off independently, without a person in the cabin, moves along the route between the plants, drives into the shop of the car plant, it parks to the landing stage and waits for unloading," - explains the algorithm of the car's work chief designer of innovative cars of service of the chief designer of innovative cars of the Scientific and Technical Center of KAMAZ, Sergey Nazarenko. – “The vehicle should be sent back after the unloading. In such a shuttle mode, it moves along one route during the working day".

The prototype of cargo auto robot has already been manufactured. The first "Odyssey" is assembled on the basis of a diesel truck KAMAZ-43083. The vehicle is equipped with four types of sensors: "eyes" and other "senses" of the truck are video cameras, radars, lidars - laser range finders and sonars. Autorobot has high-precision navigation (with an error of not more than 3-5 cm) and a communication system: industrial Wi-Fi, 4G and a special VHF-range in case that other communication channels are suppressed, that is, an emergency channel. All the data from the sensors go to the main brain of the vehicle - the computer, where the incoming information about the traffic parameters will be counted. Based on this, it will be made the decision how the vehicle should behave and how to perform properly the task.

It is just one of the unmanned projects, with which the company's specialists are working actively now for the development of KAMAZ intelligent transport systems. According to Mr. Nazarenko, after the carrying out all the necessary checks and tests, the drones will be more independent. The project "Odyssey" is a scalable project, and one or two vehicles on the route in the future will turn into tens and hundreds. Pilot races by KAMAZ are planned to start already in the summer of 2018, and by the end of the year the adjustments will be completed to start the working races since the new 2019 year.
