AGV specialist AutoGuide last week introduced new guidance technology. Natural feature guidance uses laser scanners to determine the path of the vehicle. It allows for simpler installation and adjustments, while requiring less routing infrastructure than other technologies. With docking accuracy to within 5 mm, automatic load transfer operations can be handled with ease.
The ITM5K automatic guided vehicle industrial tugger with manual option by AutoGuide tows 10,000 pounds and includes an operator override function with safety mat sensor that allows for automatic, immediate manual operation as needed.
