AGV wireless charging is the future trend. With continuous development, people have higher and higher requirements for the industrial process. We see more and more robots used in the production line. The unmanned carrying vehicle is one of them. It’s also called AGV, which does not need the driver in the operation process. With the automatic guiding device, it can run according to the predetermined track cycle.
In the current context, our AGV industry is facing a massive crisis; of course, it is also facing opportunities. With the continuous development of e-commerce, the storage AGV robot multiplies, and the flexibility of AGV has become its advantage.
The current charging methods of AGV include offline charging and online charging
There are two ways to charge offline,
- The first method is to replace the AGV battery. The pain points are a long time to replace the battery, trouble to disassemble, to reserve multiple batteries for charging and turnover;
- The second method is to use the plugin the fixed charging position and reserve the number of AGVs for the waiting time of charging.
On line charging generally uses the way of brush plate and brush block to carry out contact charging. The charging contact is worn and needs to be replaced regularly. Because the charging current is substantial and may produce sparks in the charging process, there are hidden dangers. Also, because the charging contact is an exposed part, it can not usually work in the environment of low-temperature condensation, humidity, flammable, and explosive.
