ACVS Traffic and Order Management Software for Intralogistics

Pilz is expanding its offering for the safe use of automated guided vehicle systems (AGVs). In cooperation with NAiSE GmbH, the expert for material flow automation, Pilz offers the world’s first traffic and order management software for all participants in intralogistics (optimizing, integrating, automating, and managing the logistical flow) – for humans as well as transport systems. Thanks to precise, real-time localization, NAiSE Traffic can be used to implement AGV system applications safely and efficiently. The aim is to provide higher productivity in intralogistics.

Via the sensor infrastructure and intelligent, as well as integrated and manufacturer-independent communication, the traffic and order management software NAiSE Traffic analyses the flow of traffic and goods in intralogistics applications, in real-time. The software coordinates and controls traffic involving all parties – humans and industrial trucks such as AGV systems or forklifts. As a result, operators have a complete, manufacturer-independent material flow automation solution.

Congestion, bottlenecks, shortages or accidents are avoided. This increases safety and optimizes traffic control – for greater transparency, efficiency and productivity. Pilz is expanding its comprehensive solutions package in the field of intralogistics to include the traffic and order management software from the German-based start-up NAiSE. For the safe automation of automated guided vehicles (AGV) or vehicle systems, Pilz offers an extensive portfolio of safety components with sensor and control technology, as well as a security solution.

Pilz also provides support with corresponding services for vehicles and applications – in compliance with the standard ISO 3691-4, including CE marking. This way, Pilz gives manufacturers and operators a complete package for safe, productive intralogistics applications.
