Automated Guided Vehicles (AGV)
AGVs have been used to automate repetitive material delivery routes in factories and warehouses for half a century. These vehicles come in a wide variety of configurations, but all are designed to follow a series of mapped routes throughout a facility. AGVs follow wires, floor tape or GPS and are outfitted with a variety of sensors to avoid collision with obstacles. AGVs make sense when there is a consistently high volume of materials movement following a consistent path.
