About MAG

Mobile Automation Group (MAG) members are the Industry’s leading suppliers of automatic guided vehicle systems. They supply systems worldwide and in virtually every major manufacturing and distribution sector.

Both Automatic Guided Vehicles (AGVs) and Autonomous Mobile Robots (AMRs) are computer-controlled wheel-based load carriers (normally battery-powered) that run on a plant or warehouse floor (or, if outdoors, on a paved surface). The main difference between AGVs and AMRs is how the path they follow is determined.

  • Most AGVs follow predefined paths, although there may be areas of the plant or warehouse where they have more freedom.
  • AMRs can determine their own path, although they will attempt to follow suggested paths if they exist.

This difference leads to differing methodologies for ensuring safe operation for the two types of vehicles.

  • AGVs follow the ANSI B56.5 Safety Guidelines
  • There is a standard under development for AMRs
