Automated guided vehicle (AGVs) are most often in industrial applications to transport materials around a manufacturing facility or warehouse. In today's era of the Industrial Internet of Things, factories are not only undergoing a fourth industrial revolution, but AGVs are also shifting from automation toward intelligentization, with applications expanding from the factory to the parking lot. Using a Wi-Fi module, laser navigation, and comb-exchange technology, an AGV manufacturer has created an intelligent parking robot that can lift and park a car in just 120 seconds. To ensure the parking robot can accurately receive tasks from the centralized dispatch system and execute commands without collision or accident, a palm-sized fanless, in-vehicle x86 industrial communication gateway was incorporated. In the past, AGVs were typically controlled and operated using a programmable logic controller (PLC). However, parking AGVs must perform multiple arithmetic operations to ensure comprehensive monitoring, for which PLCs offer inadequate speed and function. Advantech's PC-based embedded automation computer UNO-2272G equipped with two iDoor modules (Wi-Fi communication and CANopen fieldbus protocol) not only fulfills the performance requirements of parking AGVs, but also supports componentized real-time operating systems (Windows Embedded Compact 7), customized drivers, and remote management and monitoring software (WISE-PaaS/RMM). These features provide AGV robots with additional capabilities, such as instruction issuing, travel track and position monitoring, system health diagnosis, and automatic scheduling.
