4 PGV Navigation Methods for AGVs

Posted by Gerry Paci on Thu, Jul 18, 2019

Moving from point A to B in a busy warehouse can be a challenge for even the most advanced AGVs. So, it is important that the right guidance system is in place to ensure material handling tasks can be performed accurately and reliably.

With the compact position guided vision (PGV) positioning system from Pepperl+Fuchs, even the smallest AGVs can navigate without error. The PGV works in conjunction with the following four guidance options, all of which are available for our newest PGV EtherNet/IP version for more interoperability: Data Matrix code tape, colored lanes, control codes, and Data Matrix tags.

PGV Absolute Positioning System vs. Magnetic Tape Guidance Systems

Posted by Gerry Paci on Mon, Apr 29, 2019

Efficient intralogistics requires automated guided vehicles (AGVs) to move with speed and precision through warehouses or factory floors, avoiding obstacles and navigation errors. Navigation technology is essential to ensuring an AGV and the product it is carrying make it to their destination in one piece. One of the most popular types of AGV guidance technology is tape. The two types of AGV navigation tape are nonmagnetic tape, which can be comprised of Data Matrix codes or just solid color, and magnetic tape.
