Automated guided vehicle working principle

Read about the Automated guided vehicle working principle in this AGV dictionary article.

When an Automated Guided Vehicle (AGV) receives a task, it initiates a sequence of controlled operations. The process begins with the AGV’s central control system assigning a specific job, like transporting materials from one point to another. Utilizing its onboard navigation system, which may include laser, magnetic, or optical sensors, the AGV identifies its route. As it moves, the vehicle constantly communicates with the facility’s control system, receiving real-time updates and instructions. Integrated sensors and safety mechanisms allow the AGV to detect obstacles and stop. Upon reaching its destination, the AGV performs the assigned task, such as unloading materials, and then awaits further instructions or returns to its starting point. Throughout this process, various systems work together: the central control system for task coordination and communication, navigation systems for routing, and sensors for safety and location tracking.
