Widely used across many industries, Automated Guided Vehicles (AGV) have been scooting around factory floors for decades. Thanks to evolving technologies like sensors, wireless networks and automatic control technologies, their guidance methods and physical dimensions continue to evolve and now small lightweight trackless AGV are being rolled out.
In the IoT era, companies are seeking solutions that can help them utilize data analytics in order to raise service levels, create better products and reduce operational costs. This not only means that increasingly more data needs to be analyzed, but both the volume and diversity of such data are also increasing. From the advantage of field experience gained from operational technology (OT) experts and data analytics solutions from the IT sector, the convergence of OT and IT has become critical to business success.
Join Chuck this week as he chats machine vision. Recently developments in scalable embedded hardware and accompanying software have advanced machine vision from a specialized inspection tool into a powerful, flexible and cost-effective automation solution.
