Laser Guidance

The predominant method for navigation used by AGVE is laser measurement.  AGVE offers full support and developmental tools for various components and guidance methods. As the main component for navigation, AGVE uses commercially available scanners from SICK (Guidance Ltd and Kollmorgen scanners also supported).

Two different methods of navigation are supported:

  • Reflector Navigation using targets mounted on strategic positions throughout the layout.
  • Contour Navigation using raw data from distance measurements.
