Wheel Loader Automatic Guided Vehicle

Wheel Loader Automatic Guided Vehicle

The automated-guided vehicle was designed to carry the Wheeled Front-Loader/Grader Tractor during its assembly at the Volvo plant. The system is composed of 11 independently driven carts that index along a straight track-way between assembly stations. Each assembly station is equipped with a control pedestal connected to a centralized Cart Controller. When a station’s assembly tasks are completed, the operator will push an “AND ON” button to signal the Central Cart Controller that it is ready to index the line. Upon completion of assembly tasks in the final station, the vehicle is by-passed and returned to the start of the queue via lift truck where it is re-enabled for normal use.
