Abstract

The article discusses a number of aspects related to the application of surface autonomous technological transport vehicles. The attention of the authors is mainly focused on issues related to the location of the technological means of transport in the working space, planning the traffic trajectory for the implementation of the transport task, technical possibilities in mapping the working space and intelligent method of control of AGV vehicles focused on efficiency. The article synthetically collects key information on key aspects related to the efficient management of both individual AGVs and their entire teams.
