Opportunity and Automatic Battery Charging for AGV Systems
Automatic and opportunity battery charging allows for nearly continuous AGV operation. On average, an AGV charges for 12 minutes every hour for automatic charging with no manual intervention required. If opportunity charging is being utilized, the AGV will receive a charge whenever the opportunity arises.
When a battery pack gets to a predetermined level, the AGV will finish the current job that it has been assigned before it goes to the charging station in an automatic charging system.
