An automated or automatic guided vehicle system (AGVS) is a materials handling system that uses independently operated, self-propelled vehicles that are guided along defined pathways in the floor. The vehicles are powered by means of on-board batteries that allow operation for several hours (8 to 16 hours is typical) between recharging. The definition of the pathways is generally accomplished using wires embedded in the floor or reflective paint on the floor surface. Guidance is achieved by sensors on the vehicles that can follow the guide wires or paint.
Types of AGVS
The types of Automated Guided Vehicles Systems (AGVS) can be classified as follows:
AGVS technology is far from mature, and the industry. The industry is continually working to develop new systems in response to new application requirements. An example of a new and evolving AGVS design involves the placement of a robotic manipulator on an automated guided vehicle to provide a mobile robot for performing complex handling tasks at various locations in a plant.
Applications of Automated Guided Vehicle Systems
Automated guided vehicle systems are used in a growing number and variety of applications. Its applications can be categorized into the following types:
