Next Generation Sensing Technologies put the SMART in Robot AGVs
Automated and integrated systems are proving to be more efficient and cost-effective solutions in industries like Material Handling. The rise of Automated Guided Vehicles (AGVs) in these applications is driving the need for safer and more reliable sensing systems and controls.
-By Alessandro Bosio, Sensata Technologies
The Industry 4.0 revolution is enabling a new generation of Automated Guided Vehicles (AGVs) for use in the first wave of smart manufacturing and distribution facilities. This revolution also requires new ways of thinking across all aspects of materials handling, especially when it comes to functional safety and reducing accidents in the workplace, and in turn, presenting a new challenge to sensing and control manufacturers.
