AV Industrial Vehicles Reach 2M Miles without Safety Incident
Aug. 29, 2019—-Seegrid, the leader in self-driving industrial vehicles for materials handling, today announced that its vision guided vehicles (VGVs) reached two million production miles at customer sites without a single personnel safety incident.
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) reported nearly 40,000 serious accidents and one fatality per week related to manually-driven forklifts in 2018. With a committed focus to improving workplace safety, organizations are turning to automated guided vehicles (AGVs) and autonomous mobile robots (AMRs) like Seegrid VGVs, which are typically used for routine and repetitive tasks, work alongside human coworkers, and mitigate safety risks associated with human forklift drivers.
Seegrid vision-guided vehicles increase operational efficiency alongside human workers in complex environments for Amazon, General Motors, Whirlpool, Jaguar Land Rover, and other global leaders in manufacturing, distribution, and e-commerce fulfillment.
