System integration of intelligent automated guided vehicles

Accelerate your intralogistics and production processes and produce flexibly and demand-driven with our intelligent integration solutions for automated guided vehicles.

Intelligently networked: automated guided vehicle systems

The times of static production facilities are long gone. Efficient and sustainable production plants rely on intelligently networked, mobile units (AGVs) that work together in a coordinated manner and achieve their goals autonomously. For this purpose, we supply you with KUKA AIVI, our AI-based control system that intelligently networks your production and allows you maximum flexibility and productivity.

Flexible, automated guided vehicle system solution in truck body construction

Fully automated, flexible and scalable

Variant diversity and fluctuating batch sizes require versatile production facilities. Our intelligent integration solutions for automated guided vehicle systems enable automated and flexible production that can be scaled to meet demand. Depending on your production requirements, we supply fully or partially automated intralogistics and production systems.

System integration: everything from a single source

With our comprehensive service portfolio we integrate powerful and innovative intralogistics and production systems: from consulting, plant design and construction, the intelligent control system KUKA AIVI programmed to suit your application, project management, integration including risk analysis and CE documentation as well as commissioning up to after-sales-services.

  • Consulting

    Never lose sight of the target. We advise you on how to achieve your goal most efficiently. KUKA process and technology consulting is independent and process-neutral. For us, only the result is important: the right integration solution for your production.
  • Intelligent control system

    KUKA AIVI, the control system based on Artificial Intelligence controls all intralogistic production processes for faster throughput times, a more efficient supply chain and thus a higher profitability of your production. Through the intelligent management, commissioning and control of the AGV fleet, KUKA AIVI optimises the distribution and sequence of orders to the AGV to the maximum. In addition, the software interacts with other vehicles, machines and employees and reacts flexibly to the constantly changing demands on your production.
  • Project Management

    We are at your side from the initial concept idea to the successful commissioning and maintenance of your intralogistics and production solution: customer-oriented, targeted and reliable. Behind your competent KUKA contact person is a team of experts who will develop and integrate the appropriate automated guided vehicle for your production.
  • Concept

    From the idea to the turnkey intralogistics and manufacturing solution: With innovative power and automation know-how, our creative idea drivers and qualified engineers design tailor-made production systems and substantiate them with sound feasibility studies.
  • Construction

    Once the production concept is complete, we design a schematic structure of your automated guided vehicle in 2D / 3D and work out reliable safety concepts. In addition, we prepare cost analyses and coordinate with subcontractors if required.
  • Integration and commissioning

    From vision to implementation: This is followed by the mechanical and electrical design of your automated guided vehicle, robot programming and on-site commissioning. Depending on your requirements, we supply KUKA's own driverless transport vehicles and tried-and-tested KUKA hardware components or, on request, integrate third-party hardware and software.
  • Risk analysis and CE documentation

    Our claim is your long-term satisfaction. In addition to operating instructions, we prepare careful risk and hazard analyses and make recommendations for minimising hazards. By providing maintenance plans and spare parts lists, you can minimize the risk of production downtimes in advance.

Enter your factory of tomorrow today

Taking your resources and structural conditions into account, we create virtual and three-dimensional models of your intralogistics and production system and develop a continuous process chain. In addition to the mechanical engineering, installation paths, electrical resources and possible interfering contours are also drawn in to ensure an optimal robot removal and safety concept for your production. We then integrate these into a continuous process chain and simulate the material flow in real time.

Virtual commissioning for automated guided vehicle systems

Virtual engineering enables the material flow to be virtually controlled, tested, verified and optimized.

Michael Jürgens, Head of KUKA AGV Solutions
That way you secure your investments and lay the foundation for a seamless integration of all system components. In addition, virtual commissioning allows you to bring forward part of the real commissioning to the digital model world. Integration times can thus be significantly reduced and production downtimes avoided.

Benefits at a glance


Reduced integration time

Through the simulation and emulation of intralogistics processes and virtual commissioning, the integration time of the intralogistics and production system can be reduced to a minimum.

Reduction of hardware costs

Due to the intelligent planning of intralogistics and production processes and ad-hoc calculated routes, less AGVs are required in the production environment. A flexible material flow is made possible.

Flexible connection of third-party hardware

The master controller KUKA AIVI offers open interfaces for the connection of external hardware such as third-party AGVs.

High product variance and fluctuating batch sizes with highest quality requirements and minimized cycle times. We develop integration solutions for your intralogistics and production systems that accelerate your manufacturing processes and allow you to produce flexibly in the future.

Every detail tailored to your requirements

Whether it is a new system or the optimization of an existing system - we integrate our integration solutions for automated guided vehicle systems seamlessly into your production environment and adapt them to your individual requirements and general conditions.
