KollmorgenNatural navigation capability for NDC8 vehicle automation kit
Generic, scalable AGV kit includes navigation, hardware and software systems
A natural navigation capability has been added to the NDC8 generic, scalable vehicle automation kit by Kollmorgen that includes navigation, hardware and software systems.
The natural navigation function eliminates the need for reflectors or markers in an existing environment, enhancing flexibility to arrange and rearrange the way AGVs move in a warehouse or factory.
The feature also reduces installation time and costs, minimizes the impact on current operations, and supports easy expansion of existing systems using other navigation technologies.

Moving goods in warehouses and factories is labor-intensive work, plagued by inefficiency, errors and safety lapses that cut into profitability. Picking goods in the warehouse can be even more problematic as varying product size, weight, demand and even seasonality create real challenges for optimizing product slotting and maximizing worker efficiency.
Using Automated Guided Vehicles can make all the difference – lowering labor costs, increasing productivity, and keeping staff out of the way of danger. Kollmorgen provides complete hardware and software solutions for intelligently automating standard forklifts and purpose-build vehicles.
