What is an Automated Guided Vehicle?

The goal of an AGV solution is to improve material handling efficiency and thus reduce costs and increase profitability. With Rocla's advanced process management, customers receive a total logistics solution with a measurable performance boost.

AGV Navigation

An essential part of the logistics solution is the navigation method. This refers to how the trucks move around the facility/premises and know their exact location at all times. This information is used to optimise the performance of the truck fleet and to guarantee the system’s safety.

The optimal method is specific to the environment. Each of the methods has its own advantages.

Safety of Rocla AGVs

An AGV solution is an extremely safe system, with reliable operation. The advanced safety features mean that there is no damage to the products, buildings, or machinery. In addition, safety on the work floor improves significantly. Our AGV solutions ensure a peaceful and healthier work environment, which results in less sick leave.

Rocla PalletFinder

Rocla PalletFinder improves load handling precision and reduces the risk of load handling errors, thereby improving the overall safety situation in load handling areas. PalletFinder provides an AGV with eyesight comparable to human-like vision. It measures the exact location of a pallet and also checks if the delivery location is occupied. It enables cost-effective use of automation also in special customer processes. 

Energy use and Batteries

Rocla AGVs are electric driverless trucks. The energy is stored in batteries, to ensure long and uninterrupted performance of the system.

There is wide variety in the battery technologies and the charging methods. The combination of the two varies with the application, environment, number of shifts in operation, load weights, etc. The best combination is selected to ensure the top performance of the system and a good price/quality ratio.
