Automated guided vehicle system (AGV)

What is a driverless transport system?

The driverless transport system is a means of transport that has its own traction drive. It controls automatically and does not require human guidance. The vehicle moves through the rails or certain magnets under the floor to pass through the desired path. It is designed to assist in pulling or carrying goods as well as transporting materials.

Driverless transport systems are considered a particularly flexible solution among automated transport systems. Due to their flexibility, they can be excellently integrated into existing processes (work areas, travel paths, warehouse superstructures) and used for the transport of various goods.

In the meantime, driverless transport systems are also increasingly being used in order picking. Especially in retail and wholesale, large quantities of different goods are often picked and loaded individually from different storage locations for each customer.
