Self-Driving Industrial Vehicle Provider Remains Focused on Helping Customers Maintain Efficient Supply Chain Operations
Seegrid, the leader in self-driving industrial vehicles for material handling, today announced that its vision guided vehicles (VGVs) reached three million autonomous production miles at customer sites without a single personnel safety incident. As the industry pioneer, Seegrid’s VGVs log more autonomous miles at customer sites than any other infrastructure-free automated guided vehicle (AGV) company in the world. This achievement comes only 36 weeks after reaching two million miles driven -- an average of nearly 4,000 miles daily -- a testament to the company’s commitment to self-driving safety while remaining steadfast in providing solutions to support their customers amid COVID-19 challenges.
Seegrid Vision, the company’s proprietary, unique navigation technology, is fundamental to Seegrid’s ability to reliably navigate the most dynamic industrial environments. Using stereo cameras, sophisticated algorithms, and machine learning, the patented technology enables the VGVs to see and process more information about the environment than laser-based navigation systems. This detailed, expansive field of view, combined with robust safety systems, enables VGVs to navigate seamlessly and safely alongside humans in high-traffic environments. Seegrid VGVs reliably follow the intended route, maintain the right speed limits, avoid collisions, behave predictably and consistently, and never behave erratically. Because there is no greater concern than the safety, health, and lives of workers, Seegrid self-driving vehicles are designed with fail-safe features that meet all industry regulatory requirements. Seegrid’s technology is utilized by several global leaders in manufacturing, distribution, and e-commerce fulfillment.
More and more organizations worldwide are integrating AGVs and autonomous mobile robots (AMRs) to work alongside employees within facilities. Between the tens of thousands of manually-driven forklift injuries occurring each year, customer demands continuing to climb and shift, and emerging pressures due to COVID-19 impacts, automation is now a necessity throughout the supply chain network. By implementing Seegrid’s automation solutions, safety is increased, throughput and efficiency are improved, and disruptions in material flow are mitigated.
