Abstract: The paper describes one of the first commercially available fully free-ranging AGVs. The most innovative feature of its navigation system E¬íNSOR is that it uses natural landmarks as its guiding system. These landmarks, consisting of lines and point clusters, are identified using a laser range finder and matched with the corresponding features of an a priori CAD model of the shop floor. The system further incorporates a behaviour based obstacle avoidance strategy and a pallet detection and docking algorithm.
