Over the past decade, commercial industry has begun to integrate flexible robotic material handling solutions to improve the efficiency and reliability of operations. This has been particularly true for manufacturing facilities and warehouses, which have begun to integrate a wide range of autonomous vehicles for retrieving and moving supplies as well as robotic manipulators for retrieving components. However, military sustainment depots have not yet integrated these emerging technologies, which would enable support personnel to spend more time sustaining vehicle platforms and less time simply retrieving parts and supplies needed for the process. For this effort, we created an autonomous forklift that retrieved palletized supplies and an autonomous electric tug that carried supplies from the point of storage to the point of use.
