The event took place in Katowice, on May 11-21, 2022. Companies and research&development units from Poland and abroad came to the Spodek in Katowice. Among the inventions submitted to the competition, there were also the autonomous Inovatica AGV forklifts. The competition jury especially appreciated the possibility of retrofitting, i.e. adapting an ordinary electric pallet truck to the standard of an autonomous vehicle. The software for locating and navigating the trolley based on the data from the lidar was also very impressive.
