How Magnetic and RFID Navigation Works
Whether manned or unmanned, AGVs increase productivity with predictable and consistent functionality. AGVs reduce operational costs and hazards of forklift trucks by increasing the safety of the facility with precise and controlled movements.
Magnetic – AGVs are guided by magnetic tape or bars adhered to the floor, which are detected by a sensor underneath the vehicle. Paths are continuous.
RFID – Transponders are implanted into the floor of the facility for the AGV to target for navigation.
