1) Tugger AGV

A tugger AGV is a powered, wheel based transport vehicle that is capable of pulling one or more non powered vehicles (with loads) behind it in a train. AGVs operate under computer control without the need for human operators or drivers. See also AGVS .

2) Tugger

Also known as "tractors". Used solely to pull a string of unit load trailers and have no lifting capability. These can be operator driven or automatic/guided path. See also Tugger AGV .

3) AGVS

An Automatic Guided Vehicle System, or AGVS consists of one or more computer controlled wheel based load carriers (normally battery powered) that runs on the plant floor (or if outdoors on a paved area) without the need for an onboard operator or driver. AGVs have defined paths or areas within which or over which they can navigate. Navigation is achieved by any one of several means, including following a path defined by buried inductive wires, surface mounted magnetic or optical strips; or alternatively by way of inertial or laser guidance. See also SGV , Self Guided Vehicle , Unit Load AGV , and/or Tugger AGV .
