What is an AGV System?

Automatic Guided Vehicles, “AGVs” or transportation robots, are driverless, computer-controlled material-handling vehicles. Automated Guided Vehicles (AGVs) are also known as LGV (Laser-Guided Vehicle). These vehicles are programmed to transport materials through designated pickup and delivery routines within a facility.
