Modern factories are increasingly deploying automated storage and retrieval systems (AS/RS) and automatic guided vehicles (AGVs) in their facilities to optimize production efficiency and reliability. This has led to an increase in traffic on factory floors and within industrial facilities.
To be able to monitor and control the AS/RS and AGV systems, as well as other moving equipment, control centers in these factories need uninterrupted connectivity. Wi-Fi-based technologies are emerging as the most popular communication method used in AS/RS and AGV systems because they are flexible, easy to implement, scalable, and futureproof. In this article, we discuss some key points to consider when planning a Wi-Fi network for AS/RS and AGV systems.
