Jervis B. Webb Co., a subsidiary of Daifuku North America Holding Company, has introduced SAM (System Automation Manager), a control system for automatic guided vehicles (AGVs) and SmartCart automatic guided carts (AGCs).
The SAM system is easily customized and includes the following features:
• Centralized vehicle management—manages movement of all vehicles;
