The fact that the vehicle is equipped with a safety scanner with multiple safety fields means that it can move about safely in a manned environment.
Line track guidance (optical/magnetic)
A camera or field detection is mounted on the vehicle. The camera determines the location of the line in view and thus positions the vehicle in the lateral direction. 2D codes enables the camera (only for line tracking) to receive commands and also position the vehicle in the direction of travel.
Rails and fixed guidance
Rail guidance is the most robust form of guidance. A fixed route that has been determined in advance is followed. This does mean that it is the least flexible form of guidance.
A laser scanner mounted on top of the vehicle scans the environment for reflectors. The AGV converts the laser scanner data into the AGVs location by means of triangulation algorithm (measuring method). Dead reckoning (measuring method) confirms this position and increases the accuracy of the position.
Natural Navigation uses structures and contours in the environment as localisation reference. This means that infrastructure, such as inductive wires, magnets or reflectors, is not necessary. What is more, this navigation method makes it possible to use simple reflectors, possibly combined with the structures and contours of the environment.
Application of reflectors results in optimum positioning if the environment does not provide sufficient reference points.
