The standard method for controlling the trajectories of AGVs in industrial applications is based on wire-guide systems. It is robust but it lacks a flexible and economical localization svstem which is essential for the development of intelligent navigation capabilities and the evolution of AGVs to cooperating autonomous agents. This paper describes an active localization system developed for indoor applications that allows an accurate localization of mobile vehicles in static and dvnamic operation.

Abstract

The standard method for controlling the trajectories of AGVs in industrial applications is based on wire-guide systems. It is robust but it lacks a flexible and economical localization svstem which is essential for the development of intelligent navigation capabilities and the evolution of AGVs to cooperating autonomous agents. This paper describes an active localization system developed for indoor applications that allows an accurate localization of mobile vehicles in static and dvnamic operation. Simulations and experimental results with a prototype implementation are described.
