How Are Next-Generation Sensing Technologies Making Robot AGVs Smarter?

Automated and integrated systems are proving to be more efficient and cost-effective solutions in industries like Materials Handling.


The Industry 4.0 revolution is enabling a new generation of Automated Guided Vehicles (AGVs) for use in the first wave of smart manufacturing and distribution facilities. This revolution also requires new ways of thinking across all aspects of materials handling, especially when it comes to functional safety and reducing accidents in the workplace, and in turn, presenting a new challenge to sensing and control manufacturers.

This white paper covers the various types of AGVs, the market drivers, the various navigation and steering control technologies, as well as a look at the leading sensing technologies that are enabling the rise in AGV solutions and systems.
