The European AGV Community

Our AGV Community

The Association of German Engineers VDI has had the VDI Technical Committee “Automated Guided Vehicles (AGV)” 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.

In 2006, all AGV manufacturers organized in the VDI founded the Forum AGV as a community of interest for the industry 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, Switzerland). Among the members are the well-known AGV manufacturers, component manufacturers and planners.

Our promise of quality

We want to present ourselves at trade fairs and exhibitions and commit ourselves to a self-imposed code of honour in dealing with each other and with customers. Ultimately, membership in the Forum AGV is a promise of quality.
