All vehicles can be switched from automated to manual operation. For manual operation, the vehicles can be controlled conventionally using its standard control elements.
All systems can be used in one, two or three shifts per day on up to 7 days a week.
The load carriers listed below can be transported in automatic operation by default:
- Euro pallets 1,200 x 800 mm (not EXV 20 / EXV-SF 20)
- Industrial pallet 1,200 x 1,000 mm

Other load carriers upon request
To cater for different applications and shift plans, there is a wide variety of battery concepts ranging from manual charging to battery replacement to automated battery charging.
All systems utilise free navigation. The routes are stored virtually in the AGV control system and transferred to the vehicles segment by segment. The vehicles use laser triangulation or magnetic-point referencing for navigation outside of aisles. In the aisles, they use inductive guiding or mechanically forced guidance in the racks.
The vehicles are equipped with safety controllers, emergency stop buttons and two or more safety laser scanners for pedestrian protection (front and rear, optionally all-round). They are built in compliance with the EU machine directive and shipped with CE certification.
Additional object protection is available as an option.
Safeguarding narrow aisles requires further safety measures.
