The purpose of the MALTA project is to develop a demonstrator platform for a fully autonomous fork-lift truck that handles heavy products in an industrial setting. The truck should be able to work safely together with other autonomous trucks and with manually driven trucks. The autonomous trucks should be able to move around safely in an environment with other trucks and with people. They should be able to pick up (load) products, unload them, store them in containers or train wagons and possibly even stack them. The trucks should be able to do this with a speed that is comparable to the speed of trucks driven by humans. The project is a collaboration between the AASS research center at Örebro University, the Intelligent Systems Lab at Halmstad University, Danaher Motion, Stora Enso Logistics and Linde Material Handling.
