How Natural Features Navigation Works
Natural features navigation uses LiDAR scanners and cameras to identify structures in the environment and match their locations to a virtual map that has been programmed of the facility. This allows the AGV to calculate its own position and follow its programmed path.
Implementation is quick and cost-effective, as no facility changes are needed. However, major facilities changes require re-programming of the virtual map and designated AGV paths. Natural features guided AGVs can easily get to work improving the functionality of distribution and production facilities.
