The Simon AGC – Automated Guided Cart is the simplest kind of automated guided cart with minimal features for lowest cost implementation. The Simon AGC is computer-controlled and wheel-based, automated guided carts are load carriers that travel along the floor of a facility without an onboard operator or driver. Their movement is directed by a combination of software and sensor-based guidance systems. Because they move on a predictable path with precisely controlled acceleration and deceleration, and include automatic obstacle detection bumpers, AGCs provide safe movement of loads. Typical AGC Automated Guided Cart applications include transportation of raw materials, work-in-process, and finished goods in support of manufacturing production lines, and storage/retrieval or other movements in support of picking in warehousing and distribution applications.
