Seegrid Automated Guided Vehicles Profiled in Science Spectrum Blog
Pittsburgh, PA -- (SBWIRE) -- 08/27/2014 -- Seegrid, makers of automated guided vehicles (AGVs), was profiled in Science Spectrum blog. The article, authored by Tom Imerito, was titled, “Artificial Intelligence Gets Real.” Imerito explained that the Seegrid Intelligent Pallet mapped the ceiling as it traverses a previously traveled path and compares it to images stored in its map atlas to find its way around a warehouse.
Imerito noted, “As I passed through the double doors to Seegrid’s manufacturing floor a driverless robotic pallet jack that was headed toward me stopped abruptly. A horizontal bank of orange LEDs blinking above a row of steadily lit green ones at the top of its control module gave me the impression that the eight-foot mechanical giant was thinking – which it was – but not about me. I had coincidentally entered the room just as “Jack,” (as I came to anthropomorphize the robotic Titan) was pausing in response to a command in his memory.”
