Human Labor or Complete Automation?

As companies constantly innovate to stay ahead of the competition in this capitalist economy, companies have been automatizing their production process to increase overall efficiency. There are many advantages to switching over to machines but it doesn't come without a few costs. Some people worry about job loss, but as with any new innovation or machine, less workers are needed for increased production. One of the ways companies are automatizing is by using self guided vehicles. Self guided vehicles have many advantages. They can dramatically increase production quality and output... Read More

Self Guided Vehicles

What if you could have a whole army of vehicles that could autonomously work for your company? Actually, it is possible, and has been for some time. The first self guided vehicle was created in 1953. Since then self guided vehicles also called automated guided vehicles can do assigned jobs for your company autonomously. The modern generations of these machines have advanced drastically in efficiency and intelligence. Typically, each vehicle is designed for one specific task, some more intricate than others. One common design is a forked vehicle. They are... Read More

Top 5 Impacts Self-Driving Cars Will Have on the U.S. Economy

Automation Replacing Human Workers Since the beginning of time, humans have searched for ways to increase the efficiency of work. The pursuit of improved effectiveness and work habits has shaped not only our technology but also our entire culture. Since the Industrial Revolution, humans have implemented technology in some ways to push economic progress. While this process has delivered increased production at lowered cost through mass-production, it has also generated cultural anxiety throughout history. The United States and many other countries are now suffering from another moment of concern as... Read More

Self Guided Vehicles

Self guided vehicles are computer-controlled transportation units that perform applications without any sort of human direction or control. Used increasingly in place of fork lifts, conveyor systems and manual push-carts, automatic guided vehicles provide high volumes of movement, especially for repetitive and continuous processes. Industries such as aerospace, automotive assembly, food and beverage processing, mail service, assembly, newspaper, pharmaceutical, plastic manufacturing and storage use AGVs for sorting, delivering, transporting and assembling operations.

There are a number of different AGV systems that can be adjusted according to a manufacturer’s needs, based on their products and what kind of self guided vehicle would be most useful. Fixed path guidance systems use embedded wire, magnetic tape or strips of paint to guide the autonomous guided vehicle along a predetermined and set path. The vehicle uses an antenna and radio frequencies to stay on the correct route as the wire paths have frequencies or currents running through them that an antenna on the vehicle follows. More commonly found today however are computer-based free range systems which bring the added advantage of route flexibility. Computer software is used to program the vehicles which are then able to use internal navigation, often combined with laser scanners and targets to move around a factory or warehouse floor. There are also inertial guidance vehicles which have a gyroscope that maintains the path by directions from a computer control system.

Depending on the specific application for which a vehicle is to be used, self guided vehicles range significantly in construction and shape. They may have a towing mechanism, room for unit or pallet loading, fork lifts, space for light loads or components needed in assembly lines like robotic arms. Light load vehicles can be used for small parts distribution and assembly, while much larger vehicles such as towing vehicles can be used for moving heavy and cumbersome loads. Other self-guided vehicles are designed for use in specific environments such as those used in clean room processes and operations. These electric battery powered vehicles are useful in indoor applications where no sudden or essential decisions are made that cannot be done by automated machinery. While they may be considered a high initial investment, self guided vehicles reduce labor costs, increase efficiency and provide safer working environments. They are able to work around the clock improving the operational flow and greatly increasing output production rates. Furthermore, these vehicles eliminate the risk of bumping, crashes and collisions which are often a cause for concern with worker-controlled machines and vehicles.
