Drone for Stocktaking and Quality Inspection of Pallet Contents in the Warehouse

In the DroneStock research project, an unmanned aerial system was developed for automatic stocktaking and quality inspection of pallet contents in indoor block storage facilities. By using a helium-based lighter-than-air drone and intelligent sensor technology, the drone can navigate collision-free and does not need to be separated from humans or other automated systems. Latency-critical calculations, e.g. for collision avoidance, can be carried out directly on the drone using special AI hardware. Complex calculations for package recognition and identification (QR codes) are outsourced to a mobile server, which is positioned directly in the indoor area and has its own wireless communication system. A separate 3D environment was developed to control and visualize the system.
