The brief

Today, automated trucks move in warehouses according to a pre designed schedule and route. The trucks are collecting a lot of data, but it is not analyzed. Location of the goods are being identified, the forklift knows where other forklifts are and where they are going. Why does not the forklift calculate the fastest/optimal route to the goods? Could the forklift override a manual input and suggest an even better order for picking up the goods? How do we make this real?

The background

Today, machines are getting more intelligent and perform complicated tasks. But they are still lacking the sense of awareness. We want to see what happens when you replace the senses of a human operator with advanced learning.

The solution

Make the calculations. Show us that it works. Maybe a computer simulation or maybe a demo warehouse.
