Savant AGVs for hospital cart transportation utilize our ˜Smart™ AGV control system and unique ˜virtual™ path navigation technology. Savant ˜target™free™ AGVs are used to move all types of hospital carts including food, linen, trash, supply, surgical kit type carts. System controls allow considerable flexibility to meet different department user needs. The AGVs are automatically assigned to heavy cart volume areas to minimize response time and optimize throughput. Unlike other hospital AGVs, entire AGV body is stainless steel which unlike painted steel will not stain, chip or corrode.
