Almost everyone knows the classic computer game, which aims to place variously shaped elements in a given space as compactly as possible. ŠKODA AUTO logistics has the same task whenever they have to load a 40-foot-long freight container. However, since 2020, they have been supported by an application using artificial intelligence technology: OPTIKON AI calculates the best way to place and the optimal number of different types of pallets, thus maximizing the loading capacity of the container.
How exactly does OPTIKON work? What does such a container loading look like in practice? And where else could similar optimization help the carmaker? The guests of today's SIMPLY CLEVER PODCAST 2.0 are the coordinator of the ŠKODA AUTO transport systems, Jakub Novák, and Petr Švarc from the artificial intelligence department.
