Line guidance and grid localization

Efficient localization solutions for automated guided vehicles

Line guidance and grid localization are simple forms of localization for automated guided vehicles. For line guidance, the sensor detects an optical or magnetic line and outputs the position deviation to the line. For grid localization, the sensor detects 2D codes which are attached to the floor as rasters and deliver position data to the vehicle control.
