Cambridge, MA -- (ReleaseWire) -- 02/19/2018 -- Vecna Robotics is pleased to be the only AGV exhibitor at MODEX offering IIoT (Industrial Internet of Things) Monitoring. Vecna AGVs can handle the transport of pallets to intermediate storage buffers automatically. The system also handles the flow of empty pallets to the production lines. The idea of using data captured by automated guided vehicles always seemed like an obvious segue. Before now, all the data points have never been available and actionable in predictive analytics, maintenance, safety, and best-practice lean manufacturing value proposition.

The robotic element of AGVs has captured massive media attention and many companies from 3PLs to fast-growing e-commerce organizations, are hunting for the best solution. The impact of Amazon cannot be underestimated as the entire nature of omni-channel fulfillment, goods-to-person delivery, high labor demand, and low labor availability are driving to the critical intersection of AGVs and IIoT 24/7 Monitoring.

No longer an option, no AGV should ever be purchased without 24/7 IIoT Monitoring. As part of industrial, manufacturing, and distribution innovation policy, companies in record numbers are striving for continuous improvement. Even 3-shift operations benefit when others objectively review plant floor operations and take mandatory corrective action.
