Managing AGV Fleet Made Simpler with Seegrid Supervisor
Pittsburgh, PA -- (SBWIRE) -- 08/06/2014 -- Seegrid, makers of automated guided vehicles (AGVs), discussed the introduction of Seegrid Supervisor on the company blog. Jeff Christensen, Director of Product Development at Seegrid, explained, “We’re very excited about our newest product offering, Seegrid Supervisor.
Seegrid Supervisor is an enterprise application, installed in your facility with a small network appliance. Using a web browser, you can access a wealth of information about your Seegrid fleet in real time, as well as create straightforward business rules that put the power of automation in the palm of your hand.”
Seegrid AGVs navigate based on pictures taken by cameras, and do not necessarily need to communicate with any other device or infrastructure to run routes. To communicate across a fleet, the vehicles connect over WiFi to Supervisor, which monitors all Seegrid vehicles all the time. The WiFi connection is already built-in to the vehicle, and can easily run on existing WiFi networks. By monitoring every vehicle in real time, Supervisor is able to provide new features that provide even greater returns on your Seegrid investment.
