What is AGV

AGV is the abbreviation of (Automated Guided Vehicle), which means “automatically guided transport vehicle”. It is equipped with electromagnetic or optical automatic guidance devices. It can travel along a prescribed guidance path. It has safety protection and various mobility. Carrying function of the transport vehicle.

Automated  Guided  Vehicle (AGV for short) refers to a transport vehicle equipped with electromagnetic or optical  automatic guidance devices that can travel along a prescribed guidance path, with safety protection and various transfer functions, and is used in industrial applications A transport vehicle that does not require a driver, and uses a rechargeable battery as its power source. Generally, it can be controlled through a computer to control its travel path and behavior, or use electromagnetic track (electromagnetic path-following system) to set up its travel path. The message moves and moves.

AGV is characterized by wheeled movement. Compared with walking, crawling or other non-wheeled mobile robots, it has the advantages of fast action, high work efficiency, simple structure, strong controllability, and good safety. Compared with other equipment commonly used in material transportation, the activity area of AGV does not need to lay fixed devices such as rails and support frames, and is not restricted by venues, roads and space. Therefore, in the automated logistics system, it can fully reflect its automation and flexibility, and realize efficient, economical and flexible unmanned production.
