ACE2000 SDK- AGV Control Executive Software Development Kit – the development platform for programming AGV’s using ACE – is our high level language for programming AGV applications. ACE is used for control of all automatic functions of AGVs equipped with AGVE’s on-board control system. It is uniquely designed to support all features of our control concept and meets requirements set by even the most complex vehicles.
ACE2000 and the ACE language is a tool for programming AGVs with all types of navigation methods, wheel configurations, and load handling principles.
The ACE2000 is an IDE software package for PC/Windows and is designed to support the development of ACE programs for on-board storage. It integrates editor, compiler, linker, programming and communication tools, and utilities into a platform for the development, programming and –testing of complete systems.
ACE is programmed in tables. One table will move the AGV between two points in the layout. The ACE table can include only movements or load handling. The following example includes only movement of a laser guided AGV:
|; Start of ACE Table 25
|; Set the drive speed to max 1 m/sec.
|; Follow pre-defined Path #123
|COORD 800 1250
|; Move until X=800 and Y=1250 cm
|AABS LIFT 750 C
|; Start preset of lift to 750 mm above floor
|COORD 800 1856 CS
|; Move until x=800 and y=1856, stop if no further commands buffered
|; End of Table.
