Actionable IIoT Data Offered with Automated Guided Vehicles by Vecna Robotics

Automated Guided Vehicles (AGVs) have been collecting sensor data to avoid collisions and map routes throughout manufacturing plants and distribution centers. Until now the copious Big Data collected has neither been utilized nor actionable.

According to John Hayes, Vice President for Vecna Robotics (, “Companies have really missed out on vital predictive data collected by AGVs. Vecna Robotics provides both materials handling equipment and revolutionary disruptive IIoT monitoring. From simple OEE (Overall Equipment Effectiveness) to maintenance data, safety recommendations, and lean manufacturing elimination of waste, Vecna Robotics is changing the entire conversation in materials handling. Vecna was the first company to offer actionable materials handling data.”

Vecna Robotics has taken the lead by providing actionable data which ensures manufacturing engineers have best-practice lean manufacturing solutions, driving prices down, improving both productivity and throughput. This advanced forward-looking utilization of Big Data is quickly becoming the industry standard. It transcends current AGV and AGC (Automated Guided Carts) and quickly defines the nomenclature of Industry 5.0.

In a first-of-its-kind leasing program, Vecna Robotics is offering a combination of both materials handling equipment AND IIoT monitoring. This program ensures a rapid ROI and far less than the cost of employing and insuring a fork truck driver.
