Which kind of navigation method is good for AGV? With the rapid development of social economy and logistics industry, AGV car has gradually replaced manual loading and unloading goods, which has improved work efficiency, safety and reduced labor intensity. It is foreseeable that AGV cars will be in the market in the future. The demand on the top will also increase.
Three navigation methods commonly used by AGV in the market: magnetic strip navigation, trackless inertial navigation, and laser navigation. Which kind of navigation method is good for AGV?
Magnetic stripe navigation: The cost is low. The AGV can only walk according to the magnetic strip. Since the AGV often travels back and forth on the magnetic strip, the magnetic strip is easily damaged, and it is impossible to realize intelligent avoidance or change the task in real time through the control system.
Trackless inertial navigation: accurate positioning, easy to control communication, no interference to sound and light. The trackless inertial AGV has certain requirements on the site flatness and the price is high.
Laser navigation: The ground does not need other positioning facilities, can adapt to a variety of on-site environments, high manufacturing costs, relatively high environmental requirements (external light, ground requirements, visibility requirements, etc.).
The AGVs of these three navigation methods each have their own advantages and can be purchased according to personal budget and actual situation.
