Safe operation of automated guided vehicle systems

For automated guided vehicle systems (AGVS), in cooperation with the expert for material flow automation NAiSE GmbH, we offer the world’s first traffic and order management software, for all participants in intralogistics. Thanks to intelligent sensor infrastructure and integrated, manufacturer-independent communication, the order management software “NAiSE Traffic” analyses the flow of traffic and goods in real-time. The software coordinates and controls traffic involving all parties – whether freely navigating or track-bound, as well as with forklifts.

Benefit from a complete material flow automation solution: Congestion, bottlenecks or accidents are avoided. This increases safety and optimises traffic control – for greater transparency, efficiency and productivity.

Do you use automated guided vehicles or vehicle systems in your production hall or in intralogistics applications? Then you need to ensure that your system is not only designed safely, but is also applied safely and above all productively, taking into account all the spatial and infrastructural conditions.

Our “Safe operation of automated guided vehicle systems” service offers a complete package, right through to the international conformity assessment.

The standard ISO 3691-4 specifies a clear procedure for achieving safety on an automated guided vehicle system, for both manufacturers and operators. It defines an automated guided vehicle system as a combination of one or more automated guided vehicles or autonomous mobile robots and the plant environment.

The 2020 publication of the standard ISO 3691-4 for automated guided vehicle systems and autonomous mobile robots was a reaction to the rapid development of new technologies in the field of automated vehicles. The ISO standard was long overdue, as its predecessor (EN 1525:1997) had been published 23 years previously. It can now be regarded as the most important international standard for automated guided vehicle systems. In Europe, ISO 3691-4 is supplemented by the standard EN 1175:2020, which refers to specific electrical aspects of self-propelled industrial trucks (including automated guided vehicle systems). http://www.pilz.com

Where a human shares a workspace with an automated guided vehicle, i.e. a machine, there are particular requirements of the safety concepts. Human and machine must be able to operate smoothly and safely within the same environment.

We take a holistic look at your automated guided vehicle system. We get on board even as the system concept is being developed in the design phase, and accompany your projects right through to commissioning. This helps us to ensure that safety and productivity are guaranteed in the operation of your automated guided vehicle systems.
