How do you increase the availability of outdoor AGVs?

Increase the productivity of your outdoor automation applications with optimized protective fields for any weather. The AGV Dynamic Weather Assist safety system enables continuous operation of automated guided vehicles (AGVs), even in heavy rain or snowfall. Instead of stopping, the AGVs simply reduce their speed. When the weather improves, the vehicles increase their speed.

Thanks to dynamic, weather-dependent protective field switching, the outdoor AGV with the AGV Dynamic Weather Assist safety system from SICK runs at optimized speed

The software function block enables automatic AGV speed adjustment. The speed is reduced in bad weather.

The AGV Dynamic Weather Assist safety system from SICK ensures optimized speed in sunny weather through dynamic protective field switching

When the weather improves, the speed, and therefore the productivity, is increased again.
