At Munich Airport, the Fraunhofer Institute is subjecting a newly developed robot called "Evobot" to a test run. This is subjected to an initial practical test in the cargo terminal and on the apron at Munich Airport.

During the first test drives at Cargogate at Munich Airport, the autonomous robot proved how versatile it is. “The development and expansion of the cargo and logistics area are essential components of our corporate strategy. We welcome every initiative to optimize and digitize handling processes. The evoBOT will make the day-to-day work of our colleagues in the cargo area easier and make the workplace more attractive,” explains Jost Lammers, CEO of Flughafen München GmbH.
