Autonomous Vehicle based Storage and Retrieval System (AVS/RS) is a material handling technology, which has been proposed as an alternative to crane-based AS/RS. In AVS/RS, autonomous vehicles provide horizontal movement (x and y axis) within a tier whereas lifts provide vertical movement (z axis) between tiers. The transaction cycle time is composed of… CONTINUE READING
