How SmartCart AGC works
Webb’s SmartCart® AGC provides multiple navigation options to meet the specific needs of your environment. The most widely used option is magnetic tape, which is installed by merely cleaning the floor and applying the tape. Transponder tags can be placed on the floor to indicate locations where SmartCart AGCs are to perform assigned tasks. Various tasks such as stopping, increasing/decreasing speed, lifting and lowering can be performed at different locations. To modify the guidepath, you can simply pull up the magnetic tape and reapply it in another location (along with any transponder tags).
In high-traffic areas where magnetic tape could be damaged, a bar magnet strip can be embedded into the floor in place of the magnetic tape. Another alternative, Webb’s new SmartSteer™ technology allows you to program a SmartCart AGC to intentionally leave the navigation path and perform functions such as:
crossing an aisle completing a three-point turn full reversing returning to the guidepath
