To enable the industry to keep pace with trends through quick and cost-efficient development, Markus Fenn and Prof. Dr. Stefan May developed Eduard, a teaching and prototyping platform that can be used to map current trends.
One of the key elements to consider when selecting LiDAR technology is whether you need safe LiDAR or LiDAR. But what makes LiDAR safe? And when do you need a safety-rated device? Well, look no further, we've got the answers for you right here!
Delica selected a Stöcklin AGV with BlueBotics' ANT navigation technology to automate their materials handling between production and logistics.
Forvia, one of the world's leading automotive manufacturers, completes a successful AGV installation at its factory in Paraná, Brazil.
As a relatively new addition to site operations, standards and data on AGV safety are still developing, but some AGV manufacturers are going above and beyond the minimum requirements to help ensure accident-free operations.
Having the wrong elevated flooring surface - such as concrete, which frequently has uneven surfaces, cracks, and spalling - can significantly hamper the function and productivity of AGVs and AMRs.
One of the best ways today to improve business efficiency is through the use of warehouse robots. And while planning is underway to adopt warehouse robots, it's important to consider the most ideal flooring.
Any automated system is only as good as its reliability. An automated guided vehicle (AGV) for example, needs to do the job it is programmed to do; without error, quickly and efficiently.
Material logistics plays a crucial role in manufacturing processes and warehouses, but should a company choose an autonomous guided vehicle (AGV) or a conveyor system? Leaders in intralogistics solutions give their opinions on when and why each technology can make sense.
The CMM installed in Hethel is set one meter into the floor on a special foundation. It means that a car for inspection carried on an automated guided vehicle (AGV) is able to access the area without the need for any lifting equipment.
AGV's and AMR's address a number of key manufacturing process and facility-related concerns as well as key cost-related metrics in the migration towards continuous improvement philosophies such as lean manufacturing and six sigma.
Although automated guided vehicles (AGVs) are, by definition, designed to run autonomously, they usually need to collaborate with people and therefore move, and react, in a safe, predictable manner.
Because there is such a shortage of fork truck drivers for the foreseeable future, automation has become an imperative. The only alternative is to automate bringing loads of finish goods (or sub-assembly) from docks to warehouses and warehouse to docks.
We have been hearing a lot about AGVs and AMRs in warehouses and fulfillment centers. But do you understand the differences between these two? Let's find out from the experts.
Smart, Compact Electromechanical Actuators Improve Productivity and Space Efficiency for Industrial AGVs
The more functionality AGV designers can pack into a small footprint, the greater will be the value to the end-user. Choosing the right actuation technology is critical to that value, and AGV designers are increasingly choosing smart electromechanical actuators.

Piab's Kenos KCS gripper enables a collaborative robot to handle just about anything at any time. Combining Piab's proprietary air-driven COAX vacuum technology with an easily replaceable technical foam that molds itself around any surface or shape, the gripper can be used to safely grip, lift and handle any object. Standard interface (ISO) adapters enable the whole unit to be attached to any cobot type on the market with a body made in a lightweight 3D printed material. Approved by Universal Robots as a UR+ end effector.
