Automated guided vehicles (AGVs) can improve industrial productivity by 50 to 70 percent but require adequate room to move about increasingly space-constrained factory floors. The more functionality AGV designers can pack into a small footprint, the greater will be the value to the end-user. Choosing the right actuation technology is critical to that value, and AGV designers are increasingly choosing smart electric actuators when seeking high-performance motion control in a small footprint.
