3) Self-Guided Vehicle

A Self-Guided Vehicle (SGV) is an autonomous, self-directed robotic delivery system for the movement of product in diverse environments. An SGV operates independently to navigate around fixed and moving obstructions without the need for an external guide path network or sensors, such as buried wires or mounted magnetic or optical strips. Instead, an SGV uses on-board sensory inputs and navigational software to dynamically plot a path as the robot moves to each goal or task destination. See also AGV or Automatic Guided Vehicle  or AGVS .
