Up-to-date and more comprehensive than ever before, the technical book provides a comprehensive overview of the technology and planning of automated guided vehicles systems (AGVS).

Technological standards of all AGV-relevant components and functions are explained and numerous examples are given of how AGVs are used in practice – including in the automotive, electrical and food industries.
