AGV: remote "wake-up" call. Networks for flexible material flow

Automated guided vehicles are the talk of the town. And in many situations they are not replacing industrial trucks, but stationary conveyor systems. A wireless network can put vehicles "to sleep" and then "wake" them again as needed. This saves energy and increases flexibility. The wireless system can also assume other tasks.

Wireless rack communication: Optimised information flow in production and logistics

Flexible production and flexible intralogistics require flexible information flow. Here the limits of cabled communication are soon reached. Wireless networks are the better choice – for example eKanban systems. The company steute has developed a wireless network for such applications which meets intralogistics requirements. Read more here.

Open or proprietary? Wireless networks for industry

When selecting wireless networks for their industrial production, many factory planners favour open rather than proprietary networks. However: this apparent contradiction begins to blur, the closer one looks. A comparison of the two systems shows why.
