Bak described Seegrid’s AGVs as an advanced intelligent solution, “Seegrid vision-guided AGVs use 3D images to navigate trained routes, which eliminate expensive engineered installations. In addition, these AGVs are flexible because operators can add and retrain new routes quickly and easily as needed. Seegrid vision-guided AGVs integrate safely into the facility, maneuvering alongside workers and other AGV systems, with no facility or product damage, and causing no injury to personnel. Lastly, Seegrid’s vision-guided AGVs are an efficient solution because they are reliable and operate consistently every time.”

Guided by Seegrid flexible AGVs utilize vision-guided technology for navigation, with no changes to the infrastructure. The innovative technology allows vehicles to be trained and deployed in a warehouse, distribution center, or manufacturing facility quickly and efficiently, eliminating non-value-added repetitive tasks. The vision system provides operators complete route flexibility, as the AGV routing can be re-programmed in a matter of minutes supporting the up-to-date needs of every facility.
