SI Systems has unveiled SImon (SI Mobile Onboard Navigation), a new automated guided cart (AGC). SImon carts are smaller, more compact, and less expensive than automated guided vehicle (AGV) technology, but are capable of performing similar transport tasks with a smaller footprint. SImon is a battery-operated optical guided system capable of performing from/to transport tasks as well as complex routing assignments, such as sideways, diagonal, or rotational movements up to 360 degrees. The AGCs can be given a variety of tasks to perform, including picking up or delivering loads. They can easily be instructed to slow down or speed up, reverse, or make a complete about-face.
