Safe operation of automated guided vehicles

Order number 1T000197 | Advanced | International


The use of automated guided vehicles (AGV) and autonomous mobile robots (AMR) is becoming increasingly significant. This is particularly true as they become more autonomous, flexible and independent of the fixed infrastructure in which they are operated. As part of the training course, you’ll receive a detailed overview with regard to the functionality of AGV and AMR as well as the risk that results when one or more AGV or AMR are integrated into an existing system. We’ll also show how to properly operate this type of system in the workplace.
The risks relating to this type of system differ from those of conventional machinery, primarily due to their mobile characteristics. So in the training course you will also learn the typical measures to take to reduce risk and how to use the most varied range of safety strategies.
