For logistics centers the disposition and dispatch of goods has reached a high standard of automation. However, the trucks and trailers bringing and taking wares are driven manually. This offers a enormous potential for automation for the yards of logistics centers. The availability of this potential is correlated to the autonomous forward and backward motion control for standard transportation vehicles. By an experimental system it has been shown that truck and trailer can be maneuvered autonomously at a high degree of precision. For purposes of safety it is necessary to guarantee that at any instant of time the vehicle is within some predefined area. Therefore, this paper introduces the principle of safe cover segments which are never left by the vehicle in motion and defines rules for the connection of such segments forming a safe corridor.
