Frequently asked questions

How does the Vecna APT autonomously navigate my facility?

During initial setup, the Vecna APT creates a virtual map of your facility with its on-board sensors based on permanent infrastructure. Once this map is created, routes, destinations, and traffic rules can be flexibly programmed into the map without requiring any facility changes, and automatically syncs across the entire fleet. Based on this map, the Vecna APT will then automatically connect all potential routes/destinations together, and – similar to a human driver – will plan the most efficient route from A to B in real-time, including updating its plan/re-rerouting as needed.
