Prodrive Technologies’ Automated Guided Vehicle (AGV) solution is developed to autonomously transport goods in complex factories filled with automatic storage solutions and production machines. This increases productivity, enables 24/7 manufacturing, improves traceability and makes sure logistic workers can focus on more complex tasks. The Fleet Management System (FMS) provides optimal scheduling amongst the available AGVs and makes sure they seamlessly collaborate with each other. The solution is completed by the AGV charging station.Contact Us

The AGV safely navigates around people and other obstacles with a maximum velocity of 2 m/s. Thanks to sophisticated on-board sensors, it integrates into existing facilities with minimal modifications. Multiple station heights in a single environment are supported through the integrated vertical lifting module.
The FMS is responsible for efficiently managing a fleet of multiple AGVs. Transportation jobs are distributed among the AGVs and scheduled such that all goods arrive at their destination in time. The FMS is also responsible for optimizing when, where and for how long AGVs should be charging. Furthermore, the FMS determines the physical path taken by each AGV to make sure their paths do not interfere. Through the graphical user interface, the user can monitor the fleet and the schedule. The FMS is fully integrable with external automation systems by providing an external API to create and control transportation jobs.
The AGV can dock into a charger without human intervention. When a charger is placed at a station, it enables on-the-fly charging while an AGV is exchanging goods. Besides at a station, a charger can be placed stand-alone as well.
