How Vision Guided Vehicles Work
When it comes to automated guided vehicles, everything considered to be “traditional navigation” no longer applies with vision technology. Vision Guided Vehicles (VGV) navigate their way through a warehouse without any need for a static barrier or infrastructure modification, such as magnets or reflectors. Instead, vision technology allows VGVs to build a three-dimensional map through a series of images taken when an operator tours the vehicle through the warehouse.
Once a map is created, VGVs are ready to go to work transporting goods around the facility. The vehicles follow safety rules of the warehouse and can easily integrate with other operations. When workflow changes arise, VGVs are flexible to any adjustments required.
