In order to achieve the highest possible throughput in material handling, automated guided vehicles (AGVs) must be reliably navigated in every situation. Pepperl+Fuchs offers the right sensors and technologies for these challenges—whether free navigation, floor-based navigation, or motion tracking.
While free navigation is based on the detection of spatial contours or reflectors attached to orientation points, floor-based navigation is based on guidance by color bands, codes, or RFID tags on the ground. Motion tracking provides data from motion sensors that can be used to estimate changes in position over time. For all these types of navigation, Pepperl+Fuchs offers a wide range of powerful technologies that ensure the highest precision in navigation and guidance.
