THK shows off AGV which makes the route set easy
THK, a manufacturer of mechanical components, showed the automatic guided vehicle “SIGNAS”. The camera built into SIGNAS recognizes the printed “signpost” on the walls and moves forward or stop according to the sign. In case of magnetic tape type AGV, which is popular, it is necessary to put the magnetic tape on the floor according to the route. However, in the case of SIGNAS, users can easily set a driving route just by installing a signpost. To change the route, users just move the signpost.
