Autonomous solutions to improve industry.
First the lawnmower, then the vacuum cleaner, then the car – and now the snowplough. Industry constantly needs to go on developing more cost-effective, eco-friendly processes and products. Many companies are now looking at autonomous solutions as the next step on the road to improvement.
Semcon has, within the area Applied Autonomy, spent a number of years researching and developing autonomous solutions for machines and vehicles of all types. Autonomous products are paving the way for completely new business models and are one of the first steps being taken by many companies to help them become service suppliers.
The development of autonomous vehicles makes it possible for our customers to start supplying complete services instead of just supplying products.
Semcon’s offering is crossing autonomous concepts from different industries in order to offer these solutions to new customers and segments. Autonomous solutions appear to be particularly well suited to the following applications:
- Operations in restricted areas, e.g. in industry or agriculture
- Speed limits
- Communication and navigation challenges between machines and buildings
- Work environment improvements in terms of health and safety
- Longer operating times for equipment
We are able to develop custom solutions for these challenges that are largely based on technology and components from the automotive industry and others.
