Fori developed 12-inch-wide precision magnetic measuring device gauges the intensity of the magnetic field and enables a vehicle to position itself at an assembly station to an accuracy of ± 5 mm, positioning repeatability = +/- 2mm. Each AGV measures 67 inches wide, 181 inches long, and 28 inches high. It supports tooling that, combined with the Center Wing section, weighs about 12,000 pounds. The tooling is transported to 14 process stations and each AGV must hold that tolerance every time it is moved. The Fori AGV is fully maintainable top side down without having to lift the AGV off the ground. At each station, the tool clamps onto pillars built to hold it, so that the tool is held rigidly in order to maintain hole accuracy when being drilled by the autodrills. An AGV comes in beneath the tool and picks it up, then works through safety protocols before moving the tool out of one station and into another. Each time an AGV slides under the tooling, the stanchions release and a cup and cone arrangement clamps the AGV to ensure a secure engagement. This required the navigation, guidance, and propulsion systems to synch, as well as the servomotors in the lifting mechanism
