Description
Technical Reference Publication

Excerpt
Introduction: This report documents a National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Intelligent Systems Division (ISD) effort to determine the status of Automatic Guided Vehicles (AGVs) in the United States. This report is intended to: 1) provide information to management for guiding future ISD and MEL projects and 2) review ISD mobility project research that was focused mainly on the industrial vehicle industry. The particular information collected parallels NIST?s main mission goals, standards and measurements, as well as ISD advanced technology strengths: sensing, modeling, and planning for autonomous vehicle navigation.
