AIV – Under The Microscope
At Modular, our engineers are always hungry to test out the very latest technologies. One that’s just arrived at Modular HQ is an Autonomous Intelligent Vehicle (AIV) from Omron.
The AIV is a self-navigating vehicle, and moves from point to point with zero supporting infrastructure. Our engineers are busy putting the vehicle through tests and trials, pushing its limits to see how the machines can best serve Modular, and ultimately, our customers.
The vehicle has many benefits and applications, including line-side replenishment and conveyor replacement – resulting in time savings and increased productivity.
Over the next few months our engineers will continue to evaluate the performance and impact of the AIV, with a myriad of further applications and benefits waiting to be discovered, as with all innovative technology.
