Seegrid Video Demonstrates Training of Robotic Industrial Trucks in 3 Easy Steps
Pittsburgh, PA -- (SBWIRE) -- 09/23/2013 -- Seegrid, maker of flexible automated guided vehicles (AGVs), recently released a demonstration video of how manufacturers can learn to train a flexible AGV in 3 easy steps. AGVs, also known as robotic industrial trucks, navigate using 3D vision technology. Vision-guided technology provides the ultimate in route flexibility.
Seegrid’s video demonstration of the unmanned GP8 pallet truck transports products with vision-guided technology. Position the GP8’s forks under the pallets to move, input the route on the keypad and the Robotic Industrial Truck travels without wires, tapes, or lasers. From putaway, transfers and selection to long hauls and cross-docking, the GP8 will reduce the cost per move. Extend workforce productivity, improve safety and lower operating costs while giving operations personnel truck and route control.
With the new GP8 Towing Attachment, customers have the power and flexibility of two machines in one. Firms are delivering pallets across the facility. The solution is to utilize the unmanned GP8 in standard operation mode for vision-guided technology transport. Workflow requires cards to deliver products and components. Clients attach cars to the unmanned GP8 Towing Attachment, and have parts delivered across the facility without wire, tapes or lasers. Once deliveries are completed, the Robotic Industrial Truck returns for more work.
