Automated Material Handling

We have dealt along with the automated guided vehicles and Robots utilized in the industry. Because of the industrial automation, various changes have taken place in the field of microprocessor, industrial logic controls, programmable controllers, computer numeric control (CNC) etc. Automated Guided Vehicle systems are material-handling systems which are flexible, reliable, inexpensive to operate, & simple to interface along with systems such like FMSs, AS/RS, and other material handling systems. Robots have also played a critical role in the automation of the industry.

Now Industrial robots perform a broad variety of tasks and are utilised in all kinds of applications. For effective management of robot & AGV, it is significant to understand the basics of robotics and AGVS. In this unit, we have attempted to cover such basic aspects associated to Robots and AGVS.
