AGVs: Driverless transport systems

Read more


Driverless transport systems (or Automated Guided Vehicle, AGV, systems) are unmanned vehicles that are automatically controlled by their own drive mechanisms. They are used in the industrial environment, primarily in logistics, distribution, production and storage facilities. These economically efficient conveying systems operate without the deployment of people and contribute to a high level of profitability in the operating process. The use of in-house driverless systems (AGVs) poses special challenges for the casters and wheels on which the floor-bound transport solutions run.
