Vecna Robotics VP John Hayes Introduces AGV IIoT Monitoring

Vecna Robotics’ AGVs (Automated Guided Vehicles) now feature IIoT Industrial Internet of Things monitoring according to John Hayes, VP of Vecna Robotics. Hayes explained, until recently, no AGV manufacturer has found a way to concretize these data and make them actionable, predictive, and fundamentally useful. The innovative development was announced recently in Robotics and Automation News.

Hayes shared, “Without IIoT monitoring, plant managers, operations managers, logistics coordinators throughout manufacturing and distribution sectors lack the data collected offering real-time continuous vehicle status and health information of the vehicle.”

One of the unique differentiators and critical value propositions of IIoT monitoring includes a video feed from vehicles allowing for remote access to all vehicles AND the ability to immediately address situations that are not safe. While other AGV vendors may have the data collected via sensors, it is the disruptive leadership of Vecna Robotics that determined the critical, even life-saving, need for IIoT monitoring with all their vehicles.

Vecna Robotics, a leader in scalable, next generation order-fulfillment solutions.  John Hayes, Vecna Robotics VP of Sales and Logistics says, “Vecna Robotics is the first company in the material handling market to offer advanced AGV solutions with IIoT monitoring. This proprietary technology sends live data to a highly skilled team of support engineers and corrective actions are executed or recommended before down-time occurs. This translates into bottom-line throughput improvement.”

Vecna Robotics will be exhibiting and showcasing its AGV and IIoT (Industrial Internet of Things) technologies at MODEX 2018, April 9-12, at booth B4987. MODEX is the expo where manufacturing and supply chain professionals go to find solutions to futureproof their business success. From understanding how Industry 4.0 and the Industrial Internet of Things is impacting supply chains to exploring the latest equipment and technology solutions from over 850 of the world’s leading providers, MODEX 2018 is where material handling leaders meet the industry’s best and brightest, see their equipment and systems in action, and determine which solutions fit future supply chain needs.
