Automated guided vehicles management
Help manufacturing, warehousing and logistics operators optimize routing of multi-vendor fleets of AGVs in near real time—to easily meet changing market and customer demands.
ChallengeInefficient robotic fleet management
Inflexibility of current AGV deployment and physical guidance systems can limit productivity.
Lack of scalability
Without the right infrastructure, older AGV systems can't achieve the real autonomy that new solutions provide, which can restrict the opportunity for business growth.
Manufacturing needs more than automation, it needs technology that can respond to changing business needs.
Solution*AGV management powered by 5G
AGV fleets leverage 5G wireless networking and computer vision-based navigation to traverse the plant floor during operation. It replaces more rigid and costly methods, such as laser-guided navigation, floor-based magnetic tape, or rails and mirror.
Remote operation and control
Use computer vision (CV) technology to help optimize routes while machine learning algorithms enhance efficiencies.
Seamlessly integrate MES, ERP systems and WMS through APIs to help increase productivity.
Get near real-time fleet status, plus analytics and performance metrics to help your business become even smarter and more agile.
Enable simultaneous localization and mapping (SLAM) to help prevent dangerous collisions.
BenefitsAdaptability at the pace of innovation
A private 5G network and mobile edge computing can help keep organizations steps ahead.
With an advanced solution, you can reroute AGVs to help meet changing customer and market demands in near real time.
