AUTOMATED GUIDED VEHICLE

Caliber designs and manufactures customized AGVs for different industrial applications. Our team of experienced hardware, mechanical and software designers who are able to quickly develop custom built AGVs for real time applications using our proven development system framework. We develop AGVs for production lines in myriad of industries including manufacturing, hospitals, hotels, pharmaceutical and warehouses etc.

AGVS SYSTEM:

AGVs are inhouse floor-supported material handling systems, comprising automatically controlled vehicles or load carriers that travel autonomously throughout a warehouse or manufacturing Industries.It uses perception and navigation algorithms to navigate facilities to reach the destination.

Intelligent navigation : AGVs finds the routes using navigation technique based on the floor map. It can take optimal paths, even on the unpredictable environments, on the presence of obstacles. Scheduling is estimated before each trip that’s why the on time delivery is ensured, otherwise warning will be raised about the scheduling that the delivery deadline can not be met.

APPLICATIONS

It is used in industrial applications to transport materials in factory, transportation of raw material, semi-finished, finished product in production line, pallet, trailer loading and warehouse. It shall be used in pharmaceutical, Hospitals, chemical industries and distribution center etc.

FUNCTIONAL DESCRIPTION:
  • Plant Overview: User can create and modify to build complete transportation systems. It monitor AGVs system power, Execution state of AGVs, Acknowledgment of AGVs, current vehicle positions and their future routes.
  • Operating System: It control and manage entire system. It takes care of common functionality that many AGVs share, such as support for sensors, SLAM and handle track clearance.
  • Map generation Mechanism: To create static environment map on floor plan to identify free space to create routes.
  • AGVs Dispatcher: Dispatch the transport orders to the vehicles. It decides which transport order for a particular vehicle, also take the action on the error condition e.g. running low battery. It takes care of traffic management.
  • AGVs Router: It finds the optimal routes for all vehicles. Compute routes for vehicles.
  • AGVs Driver: It takes care of communication between operating system and AGVs.

FUNCTIONAL DESCRIPTION:
  • Central Processing Unit: It used to create a virtual environment, create robot model, implement the algorithms and virtual visualization of the data in real time world.
  • Map generation Mechanism: To create static environment map on floor plan to identify free space to create routes.
  • Path planning & following mechanism: Follows the pre defined path and creates new route plan using obstacle detection & avoidance mechanism, if any obstacle detected on path.
  • Intelligent Navigation: It creates map, localize AGVs on map, local path planning, avoids the obstacles on path, reaches to the given destination.
  • Localization & Error handling mechanism: Live tracking AGVs and Recovery on unexpected situation.
  • Obstacle detection & avoidance mechanism: To detect obstacles and create route for it.
  • Motors control & Error handling mechanism: Control the motors and handle the errors.
  • Fault monitoring & safety mechanism: Fault detection & monitoring, E-stop, Warning alert sound & lights.
  • Battery Health & power monitoring: Monitor AGVs entire power & health indications.
  • RF communication: Communication between AGVs and Fleet management control system.
HIGHLIGHTED FEATURES OF AGVS CONTROL SYSTEM:
  • Acknowledgment and Re-orders in case of a vehicle’s failure.
  • Minimal path selection.
  • OpenTCS GUI based plant route mapping and Vehicle movement tracking, Battery health status, Vehicle status, monitoring.
  • WiFi/ Ethernet: 2.4 GHz (IEEE 802.11b)
