Advantages for the Vehicle Supplier
To realize transport systems suppliers of Automated Guided Vehicles need a control system software taking over the overall coordination of multiple vehicles. They either have to develop the software by themselves – this being a considerable effort – or they have to buy the software from other manufacturers – this usually limiting the range for own modifications. openTCS® provides a sensible compromise between both variants. The development allows all project consortium partners to start from an existing broad code base – in the best case making it possible to realize a transport system without any further (software) development. At the same time any kind of change is possible in any part of the open system, e.g. to meet special requests of customers.
