Charging Station

Automatic charging of a proANT 436 The fleet management system sends its vehicles to charge at charging stations whenever they do not currently have transportation orders to fulfill or when their battery management reports it as necessary. The proANT AGV maneuvers into its correct position for driving onto the charging station and docking there with …

Software

Software Components of an AGV Transport System AIC – AGV Interface Controller The AGV Interface Controller translates the material flow of the production management system (ERP/MES) into AGV transport assignments in order to supply the production machines. The transport requests are extracted out of a database (e.g. Oracle, MS SQL) and are updated periodically with the actual …

Hardware

 Hardware components of an aAGV transport system 1 to n vehicle(s) The vehicles (aAGVs) are individually engineered for the specific load and requirements of the costumer. The vehicles are composed of a driving platform and a load handling component i.e. a conveyor. Examples of customer projects can be found in vehicles. 1 to n charging station(s) The aAGVs navigate to …

Communication

Communication between the components of the proANT aAGV system   The vehicles communicate among each other and with the main station using an encrypted WLAN. For more detailed information about the required WLAN, please check the download page. When the vehicles are positioned in front of a machine, loadport or charging station, a hardware handshake is …

Navigation

Autonomous Route Planning How the navigation works The navigation of the proANT aAGVs using laser scanners and intelligent vehicle controls enables a high flexibility of use. Traditional AGV systems need inductors, painted lines or reference marks to navigate. This makes them inflexible in a changing environment or when being obstructed. Autonomous Guided Vehicles localize themselves …

Safety

Human Safety When an aAGV is used in areas where humans are present, a thorough safety system is required. Potential dangers of an autonomous transport vehicle: of the driving vehicle of a falling load, especially during load handling an in case of a vehicle’s emergency stop while charging the vehicle’s batteries and due to the battery technology itself The proANT system is …

Battery technology

Battery technology Our proANT aAGVs are equipped with state of the art battery technology. The batteries are made of Lithium Ion secondary batteries (Lithium-Ironphosphate LiFeYPo4). The Lithium-Ironphosphate accumulator is a improved version of the traditional Lithium-Ion accumulator. As cathode material, LiFe-PO4 is used. To enhance technical propierties such as power and durability, the cathode is doted with Yttrium. This …
