The INDTECH 4.0 project – New technologies for intelligent manufacturing (hereinafter referred to as INDTECH 4.0) aims at the design and development of innovative technologies for Industry 4.0/Factories of the Future (FoF), using the mobilisation of multiple business partners and research centres, as well as the leadership of a automotive assembly unit (Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM)) – Peugeot Citröen, S.A. (hereinafter referred to as PSA Mangualde) – as reference field for experimentation, demonstration, and technological validation.


FORKLIFTAGV provides for the exploration of disruptive areas of scientific and technological knowledge, with a view to the development of an autonomous, sustainable cargo handling system capable of performing tasks in highly dynamic environments based on radical developments in terms of intelligent robotics, advanced sensing and multimodal perception systems. The objective is to allow the industry to gain performance and increase the sustainability of processes that are fundamental to the production process, in an initial phase aimed at the AUTO segment and, later, for the entire industry.
