The global automated guided vehicles (AGV) market is expected to offer a host of opportunities for companies operating in this landscape. AGV are driverless, electric motor vehicles, with a programming capability of path selection, destination, collision avoidance, and destination. AGV offer advantages in field of logistic systems by handling material flows automatically.
Modern AGVs are controlled through computer systems with on-board microprocessors. There is one position feedback system which controls the path of the vehicle. The AGV guidance system directs the vehicle on a predefined path. The advantage AGVs offer is that they are guided automatically without the need of conveyors and pulleys.
There are different types of guidance systems, such as wire guided systems, optical guidance systems, infrared, and laser guided systems. AGVS routing system is used to maneuver the vehicle in the correct direction.
Load transfer system offers loading and unloading of products through manual or automatic processes. Manual loading and unloading can be done by the use of forklift trucks, rollers, and pallet trucks. Automatic loading and unloading can be done through powered roller, belt, and chain.
