Abstract

Target of this contribution is description of implementation and using autonomous vehicles (AGV) in metallurgy plants. Currently is trend doing focus on automatization of production processes due to degreasing costs and due to missing workers as well. To the total production process we can include logistics like important part it means transport of materials or semi-finished product from point A to point B for example between minority production processes. Currently AGV systems are expanding to the others production plants but it has to be calculated that technology of AGV system need to be adapted a modified according using and according environment where will be AGV system implemented. Contend of this contribution is especially description of technical specification AGV system to heavy industry with focus on metallurgy processes. Technical description will focus for using sensor equipment which is part of autonomous control and it serves like picker of data and information system about vicinity in real time. In this contribution will clarify specification of drive which will be atypical for the metallurgy industry. In article will be mentioned question of safety in cases approaching people to AVG system direct touch or even problem with collision with physical objectives, which is placed in area permanently or temporary.
