What is an AGV?

An automated guided vehicle (AGV) is a transport robot that follows markers or wires in the floor, or uses vision, magnets, or lasers for navigation. They are widely used in industrial applications to move materials around manufacturing facilities and warehouses and are increasingly being used in healthcare environments too. Development of Automated Guided Vehicles started in the late 1950s and today AGVs are sophisticated, state of the art devices that are easily integrated into modern logistics operations.  They are ideally suited to repetitious tasks and operations where non-added value labour costs need to be removed or where repeatable, precise positioning is a requirement.
