VDI General

Meeting of the Strategy Group

Meeting of the Strategy Group in Düsseldorf: The VDI will no longer present the individual technical committees separately on its new website. So from now on this will be done on the pages of the Forum AGV.

In order to improve the reliability and predictability of the project work, a set of rules for the cooperation in the VDI FA AGV will be created. This will soon be available for inspection and download under “Formalities”.

The authors, Dr.-Ing. Günter Ullrich and Dipl.-Ing. Thomas Albrecht, look back on the history of AGV and also take a look into the future to see what else will be possible.

The 3rd edition of “Automated Guided Vehicles” is a reference book for all employees of companies that deal with intralogistic issues or offer AGV products or AGV services, for developers and users of service robotics and of course students of logistics.
