Barcelona test-bed for autonomous airport trucks


Handler World Freight Services (WFS) and airport operator Aena have launched a proof-of-concept trial for autonomous cargo vehicles at Josep Tarradellas Barcelona – El Prat Airport.

The project is aligned with the first automated ground vehicle (AGV) guidelines being developed by IATA’s Ground Operations Automation and Digitization working group, of which WFS  is a member.

WFS and Aena have been joined in the 10-week trial by ground equipment company Faserek, intralogistics  specialist Movvo and towing tractor firm Simai.

The trial will monitor the vehicles’ ability to provide smooth driving at a constant speed as well as safety, flexible routing, monitoring, and traceability.
