Delivering performance

through automated material transport TransCar Automated Guided Vehicles automate and control on-demand and routine material transport activities, allowing hospitals to reduce their operational costs and improve their quality of care by redeploying personnel to patient-care activities. Automated Guided Vehicle System Components Vehicles Feature on-board navigation on virtual paths for fast and easy layout changes, easily downloaded from the TransCar Manager Software. Carts Wide range of cart types for various materials. Option to retrot existing carts to interface with the TransCar

AGVs. Communication System Ethernet LAN and Wireless LAN connects the TransCar Manager Server to all system equipment including vehicles, touch screens, dispatch terminals, warning lights, sensors and interfaces with re doors, elevators, cart washers and dumping stations. Advantages TransCar AGVs are a low-maintenance solution for ecient delivery of materials in carts Swisslog is the leading provider of AGV Systems for healthcare applications, oering unmatched expertise in material handling solutions in the hospital setting Backed by more than 100 eld service

professionals Swisslog can provide a Preliminary Needs Analysis dening what, where, when and how materials can be transported by AGV, along with estimated Return on Investment (ROI) TransCar AGVs are made in America in an ISO-9001 facility Automating routine material transport in hospitals pays back both time and eciencyresulting in better work ows at a lower cost than using manual labor. TransCar AGVs are easy to install and easy to maintain, expand and update, making them an ideal solution in the hospital environment. TransCar AGVs operate independently, yet provide

full control of supply transport activities at a low total cost of ownership. AGVs are dispatched by touchscreen or RFID tags and automatically lift, transport and drop o carts. TransCar AGVs are: Durable. Heavy duty construction for a long performance life. Reliable. Proven technology with demonstrated ROI. Flexible. Customizable route planning and programming easily adapt to your facilitys needs. Scalable for future expansion. Safe. Reduce facility and payload damage through controlled movement; eliminate injury from manual cart movement. Adaptable. Integrate into existing buildings

without signicant construction. Adapt to a variety of existing and custom- designed carts. Elevator Interface Control interface equipment and software enables vehicles to call, enter, direct and exit elevators for seamless automatic vertical transport. Navigation Utilizes virtual path, laser contour-following or triangulation from reectors requiring no embedded wires, tape, magnets, or other building modications. Pickup and Drop O Stations Locations with overhead cart sensors where carts are picked up and/or dropped o automatically by vehicles. TransCar

Manager Software Directs all system activities, including vehicle movement and cart transfer. Designed in a Server and Client architecture. User Dispatch Terminals Color touchscreen terminals where users enter cart destination after placing cart at a pick up station (with cart location detents). Battery Charging Station Location with oor-mounted charging plates for automatically charging TransCar vehicles. Charging is directed by the TransCar Manager Software to maximize battery life and vehicle operation time.

TransCar Manager Software Automated material transport

provides consistent delivery performance by managing vehicle routing, timing and speeds. TransCar Manager optimizes system performance by interfacing with elevators, doors and automatic cart washers. System layout is viewable in real- time 3D. Through the direction of the TransCar Manager Software, hospitals can achieve progressive, lean workows using automated guided vehicles. Applications Food Service Transport food for room service, tray line or retherm operations for timely delivery of hot meals and return of soiled dishes to and from the kitchen Sterile Supplies Send case carts

with sterile supplies to Operating Rooms and return soiled case carts to decontamination General Supplies Deliver bulk materials from the loading dock to central supply and redistribute to patient oors as needed, or deliver LUM supplies directly from the dock Patient Equipment Move mobile patient equipment to / from biomedical engineering Waste Disposal Move waste streams (general, recyclable and regulated medical) from all areas to central disposal locations Laundry Provide clean linens to patient oors and return soiled linens to central laundry facilities or dock. Convertible

carts can maximize eciency by transporting both clean and soiled material movement. Medication Safely deliver bulk medication carts from dock to decentralized storage or daily meds to nursing levels using secure access carts. Audit trail provides access information for activity monitoring. Cart Washing Integrate with automatic tow-through cart washers and dryers. Automatic Dumping Increase AGV automation with optional automatic dumping of trash or soiled linens. Payload-specic AGV Carts meet unique departmental needs for volume, control and security. Optional RFID tags or bar

codes automatically identify cart type, input default destinations and track activity and timing for individual carts. Existing hospital carts often can be modied for use with TransCar AGVs. Key Software Functions User Interface Intuitive menu bar navigation supports ease of use and access to key functions 3D Graphics Presents real-time view of system operation with pan and zoom Vehicle Status Shows load status, location, communication, battery level, safety sensors and order identication Order Status Displays Vehicle ID, cart ID and destination; order status, origination and

completion times; tracking and history Elevator Status Indicates name, state, availability, errors, substitution options, re mode Inventory Status Identies cart location and order status, cart identication and type Layout Wizard Enables fast and simple virtual path conguration and updates Schedule Status Shows cart transport schedules by type, day of the week and time of day Reports Cart inventory, order detail, vehicle utilization, charging, vehicle and system status, cart movement and historical data; exportable to PDF or Excel formats Software Interface Color

Touch Screen Promotes easy user interface for setup, local diagnostics, visual battery status, monitoring and calibration On-Board Navigation Stores navigation map in each vehicle for easy access and reference Audible and Visual Alerts Announce vehicles presence and pending actions to promote safe human interaction with pedestrians Beacon Interface Activates o-board lights, beacons and sounds to alert people of approaching trac and delivery of carts

TransCar AGV Features and Benets Sensors (vary per vehicle style) Dual-Range Laser Scanner Slows down

and stops vehicles when obstacles are encountered. Ultrasonic Sensors Detects obstacles above laser scanner for additional safety Side Tape Switches Stop vehicle immediately upon contact with an obstacle Cart Sensor Detects the frame of the front cart to facilitate dense storage of carts in lanes and ensures accurate cart pick up Floor Detection Sensor Prevents vehicle from driving o docks or stairs Inclination Sensor Prevents vehicle from dropping o carts on sloped ramps RFID or Barcode Reader Positively identies each unique cart and cart type for tracking, automatic

order entry and to prevent delivery to undesired locations Fork Vehicle Flexible to move both pallets and carts L-Shaped Vehicle Highly visible to bystanders with short vehicle footprint Vehicle Types Tricycle Drive System Small turning radius permits maneuverability even in tight spaces Four-Point Lifts Allows smooth and non-binding lift, even with o-center loads Key Switch Overrides system for manual movement and lift Manual Pendant Allows manual AGV control using a joystick Emergency Buttons Stops the vehicle immediately Platen Vehicle Moves existing carts with minimal or no

modication Low Prole Vehicle Permits bidirectional, full speed movement for maximum layout exibility TransCar AGV Specications (Low-Prole): Dimensions 67 in (1706 mm) length, 23 in (580 mm) width, 13 in (330 mm) height Payload Up to 1,300 lbs (600 kg) Speed Up to 350 feet per minute (1.8 meters per second) Maximum Ramp Up to 7% grade (at reduced speed) Weight 700 lbs (320 kg) Power Lead acid 48 volt-82 amp hour batteries (NiCad and Lithium Ion options available) Drive Motor Brushless DC Noise Level 55 dB Accuracy Lateral  0.6 in (15 mm),
