Driving and Steering System


As an AGV or AMR navigates its course, the vehicle steering is controlled by its “brain”; a vital role to not only assure that it reaches its destination but also avoids obstacles that might intrude upon its path. While an accurate and responsive absolute position sensors is the preferred solution of choice, mechanically integrating the encoder to this steering system can be a considerable challenge, depending on steering system design requirements and spatial envelope constraints. Whether new steering system design or retrofit to existing vehicle chassis, POSITAL IXARC encoders, KIT encoders, and other innovative designs afford workable form & fit economies, along with required signal function and performance.
