Steering a New Course

The increasing use and technological advances of automatic guided vehicles (AVGs) has led to the formation of the ASTM Committee F45 on Driverless Automatic Guided Industrial Vehicles . In industrial settings, typical AVGs use laser guidance technology with targets to pinpoint its exact location. AVGs improve process flow, reduce damage to materials, and improve worker safety. However, as the technology advances, concerns have been raised about safety and other issues, leading to the formation of a committee to develop standards for AVGs. Having standards in place will help designers and customers in evaluating products.
