Vision Guided Vehicles Drive Manufacturing Efficiency

Vision guided vehicles are the next generation of AGVs (Automated/Automatic Guided Vehicles). Unlike AGVs, VGVs navigate without wires, lasers, magnets, or tape, using three-dimensional vision navigation instead. Offering cost effective, improved material handling within manufacturing facilities, VGVs are gaining popularity due to their ability to:

  • Improve facility and employee safety.
  • Reduce labor and operating costs.
  • Increase throughput and productivity.

To understand how a VGV would actually operate within a facility we asked our friends at Seegrid to share one of their videos of a VGV in action.  Seegrid is the pioneer and leader in three-dimensional vision navigation.  They provide unique and revolutionary automation technology for materials handling.

As the video illustrates, the VGV is first taken through its route in training mode by an operator, once the route has been complete, the VGV is ready to take on the load, unmanned.

Take a look at the VGV video below!
