In the era of Industry 4.0 and Big Data, it is unimaginable to do without Automated Guided Vehicle Systems (AGVS) and Automated Guided Vehicles (AGV).
They have become a component of modern intralogistics solutions.
 Automated Guided Vehicle Systems (AGVS)
Automated Guided Vehicle Systems are floor-bound systems that are used in-plant, inside and/or outside of buildings. They essentially consist of one or more automatically controlled vehicles, guided without contact, with their own travel drive and, if necessary, of
▪ a master controller,
▪ a device for location determination and position detection
▪ a device for data transmission and
▪ infrastructural and peripheral devices
The main task of an AGVS is the automatic transport of materials. In the broader sense, AGVSs also include systems that are used for service tasks such as handling, monitoring, cleaning, mobile information and guidance – including in areas accessible to the general public.

   Automated Guided Vehicles (AGVs)
Automated Guided Vehicles (AGVs) are floor-bound conveyances with their own travel drive, which are automatically controlled and guided without contact.
They are used for the transport of materials, i.e. for pulling and/or carrying conveyed goods with active or passive load handling devices. This guideline deals with vehicles with wheel drives. Rail-guided vehicles, air-cushion vehicles and walking machines are excluded.
