Our vehicles

Our AGVs are fully automatic, accurate and safe. The AGVs usually handle the load with forks or as a carrier. Depending on the purpose, the AGVs can come in different sizes and shapes. Some also have special adaptions or configurations. Nonetheless, there are a set of basic features which most of our vehicles have.

The most common navigation system for AGVs is laser guidance. This requires a navigation unit which is often placed high up on the AGV so that it can send out laser beams which hit reflectors mounted on the walls of the facility. Other navigation systems such as following a track in the floor may be used, but this option is much less flexible than laser navigation.

All our AGV also have different types of scanners. Safety scanners help detect whether the AGV comes too close to a person, and if so it will stop until the person moves out of the way. With the help of a scanner the AGV can also scan the load so that the control system MAX can tell the AGV when and where the load should be transported. An encoder helps the AGV to know at which height it places the load.           
 
Some other standard features are an emergency stop button and an operators panel with a diagnostic display. With the help of a radio the AGVs can communicate with each other and the MAX control system. When running out of energy, the AGV travels to a load station where its battery is recharged.
