AGV (Automatic Guided Vehicle)

AGV (Automatic Guided Vehicle) can also refer to AMR (Autonomous Mobile Robot). To keep AGVs from colliding with obstacles or workers, they use lasers, optical sensors, MEMS mirrors, and other devices to measure the surrounding distance while driving automatically.

Recommended products

Hamamatsu has developed a variety of photosensors and light emitters, which can be used for distance measurement, including in AGVs.
