AGVs are safe

Our AGVs are designed to work in a manned environment and are equipped with a number of safety systems. For example on the vehicles you find bumpers and safety edges which stop the vehicles at contact. Sound and lights let you know if an AGV is approaching. Scanners help detect if an object is in front of the AGV and if so the AGV first slows down, and eventually stops. The AGV will not resume operations again until the object has been moved out of the way. There are also a number of safety systems in the Max control system. If something would happen to a vehicle the Max system has several ways to send an alert about this, e.g. to your email or phone.

A “Declaration of conformity” is issued for each AGV, specifying which directives the AGV complies with and is in conformity with the provisions of the Machine Directives 2006/42/EC and the EMC Directives 2004/108/EC, along with the C-standard EN1525 Driverless trucks and their systems.
