AutoGuide introduces remote wireless controller
TroY, MI, United States

AutoGuide, a provider of automated guided vehicles (AGVs), has introduced a new wireless pendant with remote route programming and diagnostics for its TV Series of AGVs. The wireless pendant can be run on a tablet computer, giving users complete programming capability, remote access to diagnostics and reports, and the ability to drive the AGVs without having to stand next to the vehicles.
The wireless pendant utilises the industry-standard Android operating system, which allows for secure communication between the vehicle and the tablet. The pendant uses dual-pairing authentication and untethered manual controls of vehicle movement and provides monitoring of Wi-Fi spectrum. The pendant display also shows multiple status readings, including alarms, path parameters, battery voltage, last RFID tag read, I/O status and more.
