CogniDrive Software
Autonomous navigation
Roboter Navigation CogniDrive MetraLabs

CogniDrive is a software system that enables vehicles to navigate to arbitrary goal points in an environment. Its localization uses existing environmental structures, so additional sensors or markings are not required. By integrating low-cost depth sensors, obstacles close to the vehicle can be perceived and avoided in 3D. The navigation behaviour is highly configurable and customizable to user needs via a multitude of parameters. CogniDrive is used in all of MetraLabs’ service robotics applications, but can also be integrated into other automated guided vehicles.

CogniDrive is modular: The localization, path planning and obstacle avoidance modules can be used separately or together, depending on the use case. This enables customizing the software for specific applications. For example, the localization module can be used on its own and can be combined with existing controllers. This is especially useful if existing means of localization tend to fail in certain parts of the environment, e.g. due to pollution of visual markers. All modules operate on a virtual map of the environment structure which can be precisely taught during commissioning or constantly estimated by the vehicle during operation.

Different sensors can be integrated for environment and obstacle perception, and their measurements can be fused depending on the current situation. Ultrasonic sensors, cameras and laser range finders of different manufacturers, as well as sensors using various physical principles for 3D perception, have been integrated successfully. By using the existing safety laser scanners of the AGV the expenditure for additional sensors can be minimized.

CogniDrive can be adapted to various drive systems (e.g. differential or tricycle drives). To achieve optimal navigation performance, both the kinematics as well as the geometry and dynamics of the vehicle will be considered for path planning.

Transport in clean production environments
Produktbilder der SCOUT Roboterfamilie

SCOUT is an automated guided vehicle specifically designed for flexible transport of materials in semiconductor fabs and other clean production environments. SCOUT is developed and distributed by Fabmatics USA Inc., a specialist for semiconductor automation with sites in Dresden (DE) and Salt Lake City (USA).

The SCOUT-Family includes the following products:

  • SCOUT®reticle for reticle transportation
  • SCOUT®4four for HA-200 boxes / SMIF Pods
  • SCOUT®active with 6 axis robot
  • SCOUT®triax with 3 axis system
  • SCOUT®roro with roller conveyor system

SCOUT® incorporates MetraLabs’ service robot technologies. It navigates autonomously and doesn’t require any guidance systems on the ground or ceiling. Once programmed it is able to transport materials and products between arbitrary points in the factory, perform measurements and handle tools – all without requiring control personnel to be present.
