ASTI Solution
At this automobile manufacturing plant a system of automatic guided vehicles (AGVs) was installed to automate the supply of materials to assembly lines. This type of vehicle uses a low-cost magnetic guidance system that is easy to install. It is complemented by markers to indicate stops or changes in the behaviour of the vehicle along the route.
