Autonomous Vehicles in Warehouses

When someone talks about “driverless cars” you should think of the phrase “horseless carriage.” It’s kind of silly sounding isn’t it? To refer to a new technology in the language of an old one. That’s why I prefer the phrase autonomous vehicle, or AV for short. It may be a while before these make it to roads but they’re already among us in many ways. Here’s an interesting video showing how AVs interact with each other in a warehouse to move products to the correct location. We should begin thinking of a future where most transport is handled by machine-to-machine interactions and the cargo sometimes happens to be human.
