    In modern manufacturing plants, automation is widely adopted in the production phases, which leads to a high level of productivity and efficiency. However, the same level of automation is generally not achieved in logistics, typically performed by human operators and manually driven vehicles. In fact, even though automated guided vehicles (AGVs) have been used for a few decades for goods transportation in industrial environments [1], they do not yet represent a widespread solution and are typically applied only in specific scenarios.
