Automated guided vehicles in the headlights

Exploring the design factors behind these versatile robots

“AGVs are automated and computer-controlled transportation robots that can be used for a range of tasks,” points out OEM Automatic. “Common types of AGVs include automated guided forklifts and automated guided picking robots. You typically see AGVs in manufacturing and warehousing, but they can also be used for inspection, transportation, military and exploration applications.”

There are a whole range of design considerations to factor in when it comes to AGVs, states OEM Automatic, specialists in industrial automation and the AGV market. Those include machine vision, sensors & detection, safety systems, motors and electronics.

“AGVs can be designed to conduct a wide range of functions,” adds OEM Automatic. “These include remote handling, packing & picking, scanning, measuring & monitoring, signalling & detecting, machine vision & transportation, to name just a few.

"As well as being able to conduct multiple tasks, AGVs are equipped with the best safety technology, meaning there is little to no chance of collisions or unsafe conditions.”
