“Wake-up” function for AGV in deep sleep mode
Automated guided vehicles (AGV) still require power when they are standing around unused, leading to extra costs and reducing their efficiency. It is not practical, however, to switch them off completely because they have to be ready at a moment's notice. In order to provide both – low energy consumption and availability at short notice – the systems are equipped with an additional "low power" wireless technology responsible for managing periods of rest. As soon as the AGV is required, the low-energy technology reactivates it, and then the main control system can immediately put it to productive use.
