AGILOX the missing link to VNA trucks (Video)

Unrestriced freedom of movement makes AGILOX the perfect solution

Nov 16 2018

AGILOX receives a lot of customer requests inquiring interaction of IGV’s with VNA trucks. Manually or automatically driven VNA stackers pick and drop pallets from shelves, and are transporting those to very narrow hand- over areas which are located next to pick-up or drop-off aisles, often less than 1.8m wide. Due to no limitation in movement directions - especially allowing parallel movements, AGILOX is a perfect solution to deal with such load units and connect this stores with the entire plant.

Dynamic Routing at its best

Precise Navigation

Navigation (position determination) and autonomous routing in the swarm. In this area, we set ourselves apart from the competition and meet our high requirements in a stable manner: +/- 2 millimetres accuracy, only on the basis of the room contour. If, on the one hand, you want to have a quickly adaptable and expandable system, and at the same time want to transfer it to narrow conveyor technologies, this is also necessary. Magnetic points in the floor, glued-on guidelines or calibrated mirrors on the wall were yesterday. We use our laser scanner at the highest point of the device and scan the environment 360 degrees. And this works in the most challenging environments, even with minimal to no available landmarks. Routing instead of projected lanes is new on the market. Determining the optimal lane in real time. Routing in a swarm means finding the best possible route for all participants, in solidarity, so that the overall route of all vehicles is optimal for the process. Linear optimization, so to speak. Deadlocks are avoided and mutual blockages are efficiently resolved. And if an operator wants to set a fixed route because the situation requires it, this is quite simply possible via a virtually drawn line.
