  1. What types of objects cannot be placed in the travel area of ​​the cart?

Such objects, such as magnetic materials in general, are not a problem if placed properly.

  1. How does the system make the decision to stop if there is an obstacle on the I-SO smart AGV route?

The truck will pause before avoiding the obstacle and wait for a preset period of time. If the obstacle cannot be avoided, the truck will enter standby mode.

  1. Will the I-SO smart AGV stop if it deviates from the route?

The delivery vehicle will perform an emergency stop after detecting that it has deviated from the route. The deviation it can tolerate is much larger than the traditional AGV, and it will stop after reaching the upper limit of the deviation.

  1. How long does it usually take for it to memorize routes (ie straight lines and curves in units)?

For example, travel distance. Including stops, a route can be automatically optimized and learned, and the nearest route can be selected.

  1. Can I edit a partially memorized route? Do I have to recreate the entire route to change a part?

When the surrounding environment changes, the function of automatically optimizing the electronic map data can be turned off.

  1. How many millimeters of spacing is required between the wall and the I-SO smart AGV?

Depending on the size of your towing vehicle and cargo, usually AGVs only need a clearance greater than 10cm.

cost and effectiveness

  1. How long will the construction and commissioning for adjustment take? (Trial operation of AGV equipment, typical case)?

Achieving the guidance does not require any destructive construction work, and usually the commissioning time of each carrier is about the same as that of a traditional magnetically guided AGV.

  1. Generally speaking, which industry will benefit the most after introducing the I-SO intelligent AGV system?

Food production lines, semiconductor and LCD production lines require highly clean pharmaceutical production lines, and the use of I-SO smart AGVs is especially beneficial for a clean environment.

  1. What other areas will benefit the most from the introduction of the system?

Any field of logistics, even the field where the iron floor makes the magnetic guidance of the traditional AGV fail, is not allowed to generate dust from the construction operation.

  1. Compared with the traditional magnetic guidance system, how much can the installation and adjustment time of the I-SO intelligent AGV be shortened? How much can the cost be reduced?

With an I-SO intelligent AGV system, the time and cost usually required for installation, maintenance and related work are no longer required.

  1. In addition to reducing installation costs, what are the other benefits where the layout will hardly change?

No installation work is required, which eliminates the possibility of dust and dirt during installation, which is another benefit.

  1. Compared with the traditional AGV system, what are the advantages and disadvantages of the I-SO intelligent AGV? The advantage of the I-SO smart AGV system is that no installation work is required, so setup time is shorter and layout changes are easier to implement.


  1. What is the difference between I-SO intelligent AGV system and laser and gyro guidance system?

Lower cost, no installation work required, less setup time and easier implementation of layout changes.

  1. Can vibration cause controls to fail? How long are replacement components retained? The components used in the I-SO intelligent AGV control system are superior to the durability and shock resistance of the electronic components commonly used in current magnetic guidance systems.
  2. In a system with multiple carriers, is it possible to maintain a set distance from the front carrier?

It will automatically decelerate and stop when the specified distance is reached. When the transport vehicle in front stops, if the corresponding route is set in advance, overtaking and detour can be realized.

  1. Is it possible to produce flat I-SO smart AGV? If yes, what is the minimum height of the truck?

Yes, I-SO intelligent AGV system supports these types, please consult your sales representative.

  1. In a system with multiple carriers, is the front carrier not considered an obstacle when it stops?

All carts are monitored by a built-in system or central control software, so the condition of the AGV ahead is used to update the condition of all other AGVs, ensuring that the entire system can continue to function.

  1. If the I-SO smart AGV has only one forward sensor, can it go backward?

not recommend! However, if the site environment allows (such as an unmanned workshop), the map data can be used to make the truck move backward. It is recommended to order a two-way driving model.

  1. Is it necessary to install sensors for each direction of travel?

The two-way AGV needs to install sensors in the forward and backward directions, while the one-way AGV only needs to be installed on the front of the car.
