The research was done at CIG – Centraalstaal. Headquartered in the Netherlands, CIG Centraalstaal supplies aluminium and steel building kits for a wide variety of applications ranging from shipbuilding to complex architectural projects. The factory where the parts are fabricated, places these on pallets when they are smaller than 250 cm. The pallets with finished products are currently stored on the area near the factory. A forklift driver picks up the pallets and places these on an arbitrary location. The locations of the pallets are currently not stored. When a complete shipping is ready for transport, a forklift driver searches manually for each pallet. Because the amount of pallets on this area is rather huge, the searching process takes plenty of time. Furthermore, it occurs often that pallets are missing on a shipping, because the loading check is also executed manually. During this research a new localization system was designed. It was researched what the best way is to identify each pallet and consequently how the position of each pallets should be determined. To design the new localization system, different concepts where considered. Thereafter, choices were made based on different selection criteria that were set with the help of CIG-Centraalstaal. The development and implementation of the design can start after some additional research is completed.
