DS Automotion showcases “ground-breaking” innovations at LogiMAT
7th April 2022
As well as ARNY (pictured), its new driverless counterbalanced forklift AGV, DS Automotion will showcase revolutionary software innovations in hall 2, booth D04, of the Stuttgart LogiMAT 2022 show.
The new ARCOS vehicle software enables premium manufacturers’ AGVs to navigate fully autonomously. With plannable degrees of autonomy, the extended DS NAVIOS AGV control software achieves a fine balance between greater freedom for more flexible applications and the high levels of reliability and efficiency required in industrial applications.
The LogiMAT 2022 show will see the first live appearance of ARNY, DS Automotion’s new driverless counterbalanced forklift AGV with lifting heights up to 8.5m and payloads up to 2.5t. ARNY can utilise all popular methods for navigating and operate using various kinds of batteries and charging concepts. ARNY features an extremely small turning circle so it can navigate in very narrow aisles.
The ARCOS (Autonomous Robot Control & Operating System) vehicle software newly designed by DS Automotion engineers enables AGVs to navigate cooperatively and collaboratively, turning them into Autonomous Mobile Robots (AMRs).
The latest generation of the DS NAVIOS AGV control software from DS Automotion communicates via VDA 5050, providing an open and standardised interface. It features DS Automotion’s novel approach of plannable autonomy. It provides AGV systems with more flexibility while ensuring the high levels of reliability and efficiency required in industrial applications.
