The wireless pendant can be run on a tablet computer giving users complete programming capability, remote access to diagnostics and reports, and the ability to drive the AGVs without having to stand next to the vehicles. AutoGuide's TV Series follow programmable routes along flexible magnetic tape guided paths. When paired with the patent-pending, remote wireless pendant, routes can be set up and changed quickly and effortlessly from any connected tablet computer. The wireless pendant utilizes the Android operating system, and the pendant also uses dual pairing authentication, untethered manual controls of vehicle movement and provides monitoring of Wi-Fi spectrum. The pendant display also shows multiple status readings such as alarms, path parameters, battery voltage, and I/O status.
