Open Transport Control System - Our Software for Automated Guided Transport Systems
Automated Guided Vehicle Systems (AGVS) are floor-bound transport systems preferably applied for in-plant material transport. They are used within and outside buildings and mainly consist of the vehicles and a control system for overall coordination.
openTCS® is a control system software which coordinates a fleet of Automated Guided Vehicles and optimizes the transport processes. The software works independently of the vehicle type and the system supplier and can control different transport vehicles (also at the same time). Transport orders can be fed into the system either manually by a user or by another software, for example by a Warehouse Management System.
openTCS® is free software and can be downloaded including the source code at opentcs.org. If you want to implement a transport system with openTCS®, we offer to support you with the integration of the software or with extending it for your concrete use case.
