The Association of German Engineers VDI has had the VDI Technical Committee “Automated Guided Vehicles Systems (AGVS)”
since 1986. During this time, numerous VDI guidelines
have been developed, which have established themselves as authoritative technical regulations.
Dr.-Ing. Günter Ullrich
is a founding member and has headed the growing group since the mid-1990s.
All AGVS manufacturers organised in the VDI founded the Forum AGVS
in 2006 as a community of interests for the sector of Automated Guided Vehicles. The group is made up of more than twenty member companies
from six European countries (Austria, Belgium, Finland, Germany, the Netherlands, Austria and Switzerland). Among the members are the well-known AGVS manufacturers, component manufacturers and planners.
