Automated guided vehicles have a long history, and with the growth of automation in manufacture and assembly they are becoming an increasingly important element in integrated systems. In this and the following two articles Jack Hollingum looks at a long‐established supplier of AGVs with ideas for the future; a pioneer of free‐ranging vehicles; and a research centre with ideas which could help in taking robot vehicles into completely new types of application.
