Coordinated AGV Movement

Coordinated movement of Automated Guided Vehicles (AGVs) is crucial when transporting oversized payloads. The synchronization of AGVs in real-time ensures that the application runs smoothly and safely, preventing any mishaps or inefficiencies in the transport process.

Challenge

Achieving real-time synchronization of the drives of cooperating AGVs is imperative. Without this synchronization, the application, which relies on the coordinated movement of the AGVs, fails.

Solution

  • Control: Bridge E facilitates AGVs to share low-latency controls amongst them, ensuring they move in “lock-step” and maintain synchronized movement. It utilizes PROFIsafe over PROFINET with a PROFINET cycle time of 32ms.
  • Functional Safety: Bridge E also allows the incorporation of a wireless emergency stopping function for the “platoon of vehicles”, ensuring safe halting in emergency situations.

Key Takeaways

  • Ensures synchronized movement of AGVs for safe transport of oversized payloads.

  • Provides a functionally safe wireless emergency stopping feature.

  • Facilitates low-latency control sharing among AGVs.
