Through the development and improvement of the Nissan LEAF batteries, they were able to improve the performance of autonomous machines, which are integral assistants in the concern. They have an instant-fast battery charge, as well as a long operating time.
Now, the car with automatic guidance is engaged in the transportation of tools and fittings from one section of the barn to another. These are a kind of automated delivery company, thanks to the fast movement of which all the necessary tools and parts will be instantly delivered as needed.
This is what makes the work of employees easier because now they do not need to spend money on unnecessary manipulations and movements. This will significantly increase the concentration of the worker on their processes and increase efficiency.
Automotive factories are one of the most prosperous industries today, employing many workers and robots. For example, the Nissan plant has about 700 AGV vehicles. If you take a tour of all the factories of this car company, you will count at least 4 thousand productive workers of Automated guided vehicles. You will hear a variety of collision and emergency warning signals.
The car company is currently testing the recycling of used batteries from the LEAF model. This Nissan car has become a popularizer of the corporation's electromobility since 2010. The company strives to preserve the ecology and resources of our planet. Therefore, LEAF and AGV are the perfect combinations to be expected.
The first LEAF vehicles had a 24-kilowatt-hour battery. Such battery models were created by connecting 48 modules. Sometime after such a successful attempt to create an electric car, the developers went further. They managed to connect 3 modules, replace their outer shell a little and use AGV in the cargo. More recently, it was decided to try using already used but redesigned and updated battery modules to power the AGV. This would help reduce costs and also save resources.
Refurbished used batteries instead of new ones together, as well as the use of 4R Energy, have tried to help recharge the batteries so that they can work perfectly in the AGV. This was the first step towards transforming the battery and making them capable of driving a car again. They became a real godsend for cars that were engaged in the transportation of deliveries to barns.
Mobile robots with new lithium-ion batteries are able to recharge as quickly as possible. Another plus is that you no longer need to take it out to connect the battery. These robotic machines only need to slow down for a short time at the station to recharge the one on the way and thus quickly recharge several times per shift. This charging method is very convenient and saves time as much as possible. Advanced batteries tend to last longer than their predecessors. They will work for at least eight years. Plus, there is a decrease in the release of toxins into the environment by minimizing their use.
The main advantage of the new type of batteries can be appreciated by the users themselves. Our clients benefit too. After all, replacing the battery with a new one is much more expensive. The heads of the corporation claim that with the use of new batteries, the price of the equipment itself has increased.
Importantly, AGV hasn't stopped research and development there. Now, absolutely all automated machines are connected to magnetic tape in the form of paths. This makes it possible to control the movement of machines in the factory. But, any changes you want to make to development, be it a change in trajectory or a software improvement, will be expensive. But now the best developers from all over the world are working on this problem. And soon this issue will be resolved.
For example, LEAF batteries have enabled automated robots to operate much longer than ever before, and travel innovations have helped eliminate magnetic tapes in factories. The technologies incorporated in AGV seem to be light compared to the company's machines, despite this fact, they will also soon be able to make a start from sensors and applied algorithms for traveling.
Nissan is actively testing the connectivity of a system that will enable online monitoring of all truck activities.
With the development of automobile technology, their production will continue and improve.
