Industrial use of the Raspberry Pi – Peugeot Citroen

Car manufacturer Peugeot Citroen have developed an Automatic Guided Vehicle (AGV) to lift & transport cars around their factory. The vehicle, which travels almost 8km a day is controlled by a Raspberry Pi and uses a touch-screen display for monitoring and control. It has an inbuilt Robopeak RPLidar scanner for detecting if human beings are in the way so that it stops before anyone dies a horrible, crushing death. You can read a bit more technical detail over at The MagPi.
