The AGV vehicles are controlled with a high-contrast strap or a colourful track applied on the floor, which forms a fixed route—a pretty robust, fast one which can be integrated without generating costs.
A wire installed in the floor ensures a radio signal for following AGV; this is a precise and reliable method. It can also save charging time in case of using an inductive loop for charging vehicles.
While selecting a navigation method, we focus on selecting an optimum, reliable system. All navigation methods are applied with the use of odometry (a method of precise position determination in robotics). For this purpose, data from drive units is evaluated based on the precise signals of the encoder and allows for improved, more precise navigation.
