The parts of NDC Solutions
NDC8 is a generic, complete and scalable system that suits all types of automated guided vehicles (AGV) from small and simple to large and complex. The system consists of three parts: navigation, hardware and software.
NDC8 works with all established navigation technologies. There is support for a combination of technologies, so-called multi-navigation, which is good if you want to serve a storage space using one type of navigation and a production area using another.
NDC8 with natural navigation lets AGVs use objects in the existing environment for navigation, removing the need to install reflectors and markers. This cuts down on installation time, reducing costs and minimizing the effect on operations. Natural navigation also simplifies the expansion of systems.
NDC8 gives you access to a set of efficient design and service tools. The design tools help you outline all kinds of layouts as well as system and vehicle applications. You also have access to service tools for diagnostics and maintenance.
