AGVS prevailed because of its comprehensive scope and sustainability, as well as the lack of damage to peripheral installations. In addition, the economic efficiency calculations showed that the AGVS solution brought the highest returns. The automated guided vehicles find their way with the help of so-called free navigation. It works without physical guide tracks and works based on a combined principle of taking bearings and dead reckoning. Dead reckoning means analyzing sensors mounted within the vehicle (measuring wheel and a fiber-optic gyroscope) 40 2 Modern Areas of Application Fig.

In the end, AGVS is to be seen as a means of organizing, as already mentioned. It offers optimal material and information flows, creating more transparency. In addition, it eliminates delivery errors, automation offers absolutely reliable transport. In general it can certainly be said that the market for automated material flows systems and thus also for AGVS has grown along with development of computer technology and the related guidance and sensory technology. This especially applies to product and producer liability issues, which drive many industries to document every single production process stage, automation has become a necessity.

DGPS stands for differential GPS and refers to the use of an additional GPS receiver, which is not mounted on the AGV, but is mounted on a fixed installation. This stationary GPS helps to determine the errors in real time that arise within the GPS system. This data allows the GPS receivers on the AGV to immediately determine their exact positions (Fig. 12). This navigation technology works – in contrast to transponder navigation – on any surface, but needs a clear line of sight upwards. Steep walls close to the AGV are anathema, as are bridges or other route crossings such as pipes.
