The Colibri project was born to address the need for reliable information on assets, flows and stock in warehouses, in order to define an effective manufacturing and flow control. Logistics control thus becomes key to the development of a modern, connected and flexible industry in which people and machines operate jointly and co-dependently. The use of drones in warehouses allows effective and automated stock control.

Embention participates in the project together with other companies such as Aerotecnic Metallic, Altran Innovación, Arcelormittal Innovación, Investigación e Inversión, Deuser Tech Group, Keonn Technologies, and LGAI Technological Center. In addition to the financial support of CDTI and the Ministry of Science and Innovation.

The main objective of the project is to drive and accelerate digital transformation through intelligent logistics and asset control solutions that integrate collaborative capabilities. Among other things, it seeks to establish a drone ecosystem in warehouses to:

  • Implement an intelligent and connected asset search, inventory and traceability system.
  • Reduce time and costs in the inventory or location system.
  • Automation and scalability capabilities.
  • Embention and the COLIBRI project.

    The general objective of Embention is the development of a navigation system customized to the characteristics of the project. A system capable of indoor positioning and precision navigation through capabilities such as artificial vision and Sense&Avoid to enable the safe flight of drones in warehouses.

    The specific objectives are:

  • Development of elements and tools for positioning and obstacle detection.
  • Design of vision software for navigation references, inventory and people detection.
  • Development of digital twin technology for fleet and environment and the possible interactions between their models, and creation of algorithms for the development of dynamic routes and fleet management.
  • Possibility of using navigation functionalities by inventory search and development of safety procedures.
  • This project allows Embention to extend its technological capacity to develop knowledge and tools in the areas in which it participates and that in the medium/long term will involve the development of new services related to the operation of autonomous vehicles in interiors and the deployment of drones in warehouses.

    All this will be possible thanks to Embention’s extensive experience in the development of unmanned systems. All this following the strictest safety standards of the aerospace industry in order to guarantee the reliability of the system and ensure the safety of the operation.
