Omnidirectional Automated Guided Vehicle

The AGV on our Mobile Area

Lehrte, April 9th 2014, updated April 15th 2014: added video and description — One focus of this year's international industrial trade fair is Mobile Robotics – this important technology event would not be complete without Automated Guided Vehicles (AGV) and our Sensors for the Automation and Track Guidance. This year you can find us in hall 17 on booth F50. Integrated into our booth is a mobile area on which you can see one of our KATE small AGVs as well as a surface movable AGV. As our co-exhibitor we welcome the AGV Forum.

On April 8th 2014 the Minister for Economic Affairs of Lower Saxony, Mr. Olaf Lies, visited the booth of the Götting KG and discussed the latest developments in the automation of Automated Guided Vehicles (AGV) with our CEO, Mr. H.-H. Götting. In the gallery below you can watch pictures both of our booth and the visit of the Minister.

Video Description

In the video you'll see the Götting Mobile Area on the Hannover Messe 2014. It shows a vehicle that can move omnidirectional. The AGV is maneuvered by three of our KATE steering modules and stays on track thanks to a combination of our guidance systems: Navigation and positioning with transponders, laser navigation with reflector marks and optical guidance along a line.
