Automated guided vehicles offer an optimal prerequisite for a sustainable retooling of intralogistics in factories. With their help, the number of incorrect and instructional trips can be significantly reduced, as these vehicles always navigate to the correct shelf and take the right thing with them. They are controlled by various technologies, such as
reflectors or even
among others. While the majority of intralogistics warehouses today still use floor conveyors - including the classic forklift truck - AGVs rely on automatic programming. They work, for example, with a visual track that the vehicle follows on the way. Collisions with other vehicles or bottlenecks can be completely avoided in this way.
In the age of digitalization, modern Supply Chain Executive Systems (SES) ensure optimally networked and securely controlled logistics around the clock. Among other things, they have all the necessary interfaces to communicate with all other systems and devices in the warehouse.
