  • image recognition – uses artificial intelligence algorithms. The image according to which the forklift is supposed to move is acquired from panoramic cameras,
  • optical – forklifts travel according to a specific route with the help of a special reflective tape,
  • laser – the use of laser scanners makes it possible to determine the position of the forklift.
