Automatic Guided Vehicles (AGVs) have been disrupting the Material Handling world. Now that the power of these smart mobile robots has been unleashed, each year brings new advances that are radically changing the industry. New research predicts that "Mobile robotics in material handling and logistics will become a $75bn market by 2027. It will then more than double by 2038" (Business Insider).
