TRAFFIC & TASK MANAGEMENT
The AGV task management refers to matching the payload to the route. The AGVs must be instructed with pre-loaded information what to pickup, from where and route towards the delivery location.
There are 3 ways to create and allocate tasks. 1. Using a bar-code scanner or RFID 2. manual push button 3. through ERP/WMS. Irrespective of the method used to allocate tasks, the application manages the entire journey of AGV starting from the queuing till the final delivery zone.
This module of the application controls the navigation / passage of the AGV & it’s interaction with other AGVs deployed in the facility. If there is any external systems like automatic shutters, conveyors or lifts, they also must be controlled properly for smooth passage of the AGV. The traffic management module carries out this task as well.
