Automatic Guided Vehicles (AGV)

Warehouse Logistics automation and Industrial Automation


This is the first model within the Comau automated guided vehicles platform; it is based upon Comau’s open automation design approach.

Agile1500 rel.1 is now equipped with a long lasting lithium battery which makes automatic opportunity charging possible. The two laser scanners on the front and rear guarantee efficient and safe navigation.

This Comau AGV is capable of transporting up to 1.5 tons; it can be reconfigured with specific automatic and flexible equipment and is suitable for a wide range of industrial and logistical sectors.

Agile 1500 implements

Comau presents the new automatic implements for Agile1500: Lifter400, with integrated conveyor, and Lifter1200. These off-the-shelf enablers are fully integrated with the base vehicle, powered by its long-lasting lithium battery. 

They can be applied in manual and automatic assembly systems, improving the ergonomic conditions of logistic operations.


  • Fully integrated with base vehicle
  • Applicable in manual and automatic assembly lines, stop & go and continuous movement
  • Suitable for pallet exchange logistics application (with conveyor systems)


  • Compact design
  • Fully electric (low maintenance required)
  • Easy to use
  • IoT ready
  • High performance (speed, payload and stroke)
  • Best in class performance (high payload)

Multi navigation: the vehicle basic configuration includes the natural navigation and reflector navigation. The multi navigation and additional options can be included on demand.
Lithium batteries: are the best choice in case of big fleet (>10 vehicles) and multiple shifts applications. Recharging time: 4-5 times shorter than leadOpportunity charging allowedLifecycle: up to 2000 cycles
Manual charging-battery charger: the battery charger can be plugged either to the vehicle or to the additional battery pack.
Automatic charging + docking station: is composed of a battery charger, a docking station and contact plates on the vehicle side. These make it possible for the vehicle to autonomously approach the docking station and go to charge when the battery level is low.
Additional battery pack + battery adapter: the additional battery pack is a useful option in case the charging strategy will be the battery swap. The battery adapter is a connector to directly plug batteries and charger.
Battery trolley: this makes it easier to drag the battery pack and to replace it in the vehicle – this option is highly recommended.
Manual control device MCD8 HS: to make the vehicle move manually. It is similar to a robot teach pendant but one single device could be used for multiple vehicles. It also has the dead man functionality.
Vehicle lifting bars: since through the lifting bars it is possible to lift the vehicle from the floor to do maintenance.
Sick programming cable for laser scanner: since the laser scanner on board is programmable, a programming cable may be needed.
