Autonomous Vehicle Technologies
An award-winning pioneer in guidance, navigation and control technologies, Guidance Automation has over 30 years’ experience in developing advanced solutions for the global robotic vehicle market and has thousands of systems in service.
Our aim is to consistently meet our clients’ needs by offering automated guided vehicle technologies which serve the market need and improve operational performance and efficiency.
Since our inception, back in the last century, our PhD optics and robotics engineers have developed enabling technologies (the brains) to realize autonomous vehicle movement:
- Vehicle management/scheduling and route optimization algorithms
- Vehicle control strategies
- Navigation algorithms
In the ongoing pursuit of optimal vehicle automation, we have commissioned and collaborated on PhD level research with many leading academic institutions and third-party suppliers. This valuable experience has enabled us to produce Industry 4.0 solutions which continue to aid end users, logistic solution providers and logistic vehicle makers in achieving their automation goals.
Now with a focus on enhanced intelligence (Artificial Intelligence, dynamic optimisation and free roaming navigation), we continue to pioneer autonomous vehicle technologies to improve material handling operations. Our guiding objectives remain those of our clients and partners in the material handling industry:
- Optimized throughput
- Risk mitigation and reduced errors
- Adaptability to meet changing demands/processes/requirements
- Effective use of resource
- Cost effective operations
We are proud to have enabled our clients to automate robotic vehicles, fork lift trucks, floor cleaning equipment and all types of mobile moving systems. These solutions have been applied in a broad range of autonomous transport applications such as airports, warehousing, healthcare, production, bottling plants, printing, retail, marine and more.
Now part of Matthews Automation Solutions, our state-of-the-art guidance, navigation and control technologies are driving our own intelligent robotic vehicles. These autonomous vehicles are contributing a significant improvement in adaptability, throughput efficiency and error reduction for e-fulfilment applications.
Our future lies in driving forward a range of innovations into game changing products that deliver effective and efficient autonomous moving system solutions.
We are committed to the continuous advancement of innovative and optimal vehicle automation.
