Exemplary illustration of an automatic truck in outdoor operation under difficult weather conditions
The company aimed for the automation of it’s internal logistics transports between different company buildings. In the long term the goal was to save costs and realize a reliable transport in the outdoor area independent of the years current season.
In particular, compliance with the cold chain had to be taken into account during the transport process in order to avoid spoilage of the food.
The existing buildings led to a limited number of usable paths and resulted in the installation of a traffic light. The traffic light made it possible to control the traffic for automated as well as non-automated vehicles.

The solution approach
The Company has commissioned our shareholder and partner, the Götting KG, to automate a truck.
The input and order control of the system was carried out via a user interface from movizon CONTROL. At the same time, the vehicle position and traffic control were visualized in our software in real time. The addition of a fully automatic fuel monitoring system ensured that a lack of fuel could be detected at an early stage and responded accordingly.
The fast and error-free transport processes as well as the passively cooled swap body on the vehicle ensured compliance with the cold chain.
movizon CONTROL in operation – The result
The internal logistics transports between the customer locations were automated with our AGV control system movizon CONTROL.
- Ensuring the refrigeration temperature of food that needs to be refrigerated
- Year-round outdoor transport possible
- Complete visualization of the automated processes
- Scalable and vendor-neutral software enables future extensions
Thanks to the modular and manufacturer-independent structure of our software solution, the customer will also have the option of expanding his system without restrictions in the future.
