    The goal of this thesis is the visualisation and optimization of forklift routes. With Pilot Pro system, we have developed a forklift guidance system. The system uses a camera and floor markers to accurately calculate the position of the forklift in the warehouse. This allows accurate guidance for the driver and palette tracing, without the need to label them. The result of the thesis is a web application that displays the current tasks to the forklift driver. It displays the shortest path to the realization of the driver's task and projects the goal position of the palette. The system allocates tasks to the forklift drivers in a way that empty runs are minimized. These are the runs in which the forklift does not carry any load. In that way forklifts are used efficiently. The forklift drivers also do not need to search for stock, because the system always leads them to the target location. This saves time and fuel in order to reduce the operating costs of the warehouse.
