AGV - short version

Automatic Guided Vehicle

AGV - long version

An automated guided vehicle or automatic guided vehicle (AGV) is a mobile robot that follows markers or wires in the floor, or uses vision or lasers. They are most often used in industrial applications to move materials around a manufacturing facility or a warehouse. Application of the automatic guided vehicle has broadened during the late 20th century and they are no longer restricted to industrial environments.

Automated Guided Vehicles can be used in a wide variety of applications to transport many different types of material including pallets, rolls, racks, carts, and containers. AGVs excel in applications with the following characteristics: * Repetitive movement of materials over a distance * Regular delivery of stable loads * Medium throughput/volume * When on-time delivery is critical and late deliveries are causing inefficiency * Operations with at least two shifts * Processes where tracking material is important.
