The Automated Factory
Movers and AGVs - or automated guided vehicles - perform countless tasks in modern automated production lines. Whether for the transport of parts for car body assembly or fully automated warehouse logistics systems, the applications are as diverse as they are complex.
Especially here, it makes sense to extensively test the higher-level master controllers or even the controller in the individual AGV. In reality, this is often associated with a great deal of effort or the final complexity cannot be mapped in advance. Simulation within the framework of a VIBN provides a successful remedy here: by linking the various controls to the simulation solution, complex scenarios can be set up and tested in their entirety.
Thanks to systems already implemented in our TwinStore, such as the eCart library of KRUPS Automation GmbH, modeling is also no longer an extensive task, since the individual components are already available and only need to be positioned according to the individual hall plan.
