Rail Guided Vehicle is all automated material handling equipment. RGV is the abbreviation of Rail Guided vehicle, In the automated logistics conveying system, RGV can largely replace ordinary conveying equipment. Its structure is simple, maneuverable, and flexible. As a common type, heavy duty automatic Rail Guided vehicles have the characteristics of stable operation, high efficiency, high reliability, low noise, and large production flexibility. According to the working situation in the factory, you can choose straight line operation, circular operation, hydraulic lift operation, or heavy lateral movement operation, which greatly improves production efficiency. Rail Guided Vehicle is a rail-guided kind of Automated Guided Vehicle.

What is RGV in Industry

When used in an industrial setting, RGV stands for Rail Guided Vehicle. Automated vehicles that travel on a predetermined route or track system in an industrial environment are known as rail guided vehicles. These vehicles are made to move supplies or products in an effective and secure manner. The vehicle is guided by the rail or track, which provides accurate and controlled navigation.

RGVs are frequently used to automate material handling procedures in sectors like manufacturing,  logistics, and warehouses. They can help boost productivity and efficiency in industrial operations, transport huge loads, and adhere to predetermined itineraries. Utilizing Rail Guided Vehicles can improve the overall movement of materials within a facility, minimize human labor, and streamline internal logistics.

What is RGV in the Warehouse

Rail Guided Vehicles are automated, guided transport systems used in warehouses. To transfer heavy loads throughout a facility, these vehicles travel along a predefined path, which is frequently a rail or track system embedded in the floor. Improved material handling procedures, lower labor expenses, and greater efficiency are all benefits of using rail guided vehicles in warehouses. These systems are a type of automated guided vehicles (AGVs) made especially for situations in which it is preferable to convey goods along a predetermined course or route inside a controlled space, such as a manufacturing plant or warehouse.

What are the Advantages of RGV

Rail Guided Vehicles (RGVs) offer several advantages in industrial and warehouse settings:

  • Efficiency: RGVs operate on predefined routes, optimizing the flow of materials within a facility. This efficiency helps reduce processing times and enhances overall productivity.
  • Accuracy: RGVs follow precise paths, ensuring accurate and reliable transportation of goods.
  • Safety: The guided nature of RGVs minimizes the risk of collisions and accidents. Safety sensors and systems are often integrated to detect obstacles and ensure a secure working environment.
  • Reduced labor costs: By automating material handling tasks, RGVs help reduce the reliance on manual labor, leading to potential cost savings in the long run.
  • Consistent performance: RGVs operate consistently without fatigue or variations in performance, providing a reliable and continuous workflow.
  • Space optimization: RGVs are designed to operate in confined spaces, making them suitable for environments where space optimization is crucial.
  • Customization: RGVs can be customized to meet specific material handling requirements, such as load capacity, speed, table size, power supply, lifting, and specialized applications.

What is the Difference Between RGV and AGV

RGV (Rail Guided Vehicle) and AGV (Automated Guided Vehicle) both refer to automated vehicles used in industrial and warehouse settings for material handling. However, the key difference lies in how these vehicles navigate and move within a facility:

Guidance System

RGV (Rail Guided Vehicle): RGVs move along a fixed path or track system, typically a rail or guide track embedded in the floor. The vehicle follows this predetermined route, ensuring precise and controlled navigation.

AGV (Automated Guided Vehicle): AGVs, on the other hand, can navigate without the need for physical tracks. They use various guidance systems such as lasers, magnetic strips, or sensors to detect their environment and follow designated paths.


RGV: RGVs are generally more suitable for applications where a fixed and predefined path is preferred. While they can be reprogrammed for different routes, their flexibility is somewhat limited compared to AGVs.

AGV: AGVs offer greater flexibility in terms of adapting to changes in the production environment. They can navigate around obstacles and are more easily reprogrammed for different routes, making them versatile in dynamic industrial settings.

Path planning

RGV: RGVs typically follow a fixed path, making them well-suited for applications where a consistent and repeatable route is required.

AGV: AGVs can employ dynamic path planning algorithms to optimize their routes based on real-time conditions, allowing for more adaptive and responsive navigation.


RGV: RGVs are often used in applications where a continuous and predictable material flow along a specific route is essential, such as in assembly lines or warehouses with well-defined pathways.

AGV: AGVs are employed in a broader range of applications, including those with variable routes, multiple destinations, and environments that may undergo changes.

In conclusion, while automating material handling is a common goal shared by both RGVs and AGVs, the decision between the two is influenced by other considerations, including the need for a fixed path (RGV) against flexibility and adaptation to changing conditions (AGV). Which kind of automated guided vehicle is best depends largely on the layout of the facility and the particular requirements of the application.
