AGV plays a material role already more than 60 years. The first AGV was born in 1953, it was transformed from a tractor-tractor of, with cars, in a grocery along the wire arranged in the air transport of goods in the warehouse. By the time the early end of the 50 to 60, there are many types of towed AGV used in factories and warehouses.
In the 1970 of the 20th century, the basic guidance technology that detects the electromagnetic frequencies of the buried wire. Through a program called "ground control" frequency of the devices turn on or off the wire, so as to guide AGV driving along a predetermined path.
In the late 1980 of the 20th century, the wireless navigation technology into the AGV system, for example by laser and inertial guidance, which improves the flexibility and accuracy of AGV system and, when you need to modify the path, without alteration of the ground or interrupt production. Introduction of these leader, making the guide more diversified.
