Abstract

The requirements for a Radio Frequency based wireless LAN in a factory environment are discussed. A proposed solution is given, with the aim of adapting existing MAP-based LAN architectures for use in controlling a fleet of Autonomous Guided Vehicles. The LAN architecture utilizes a frequency reuse principle similar to that for cellular telephones. In addition, Code Division Multiple Access (CDMA) with very slow frequency hopping on a frame by frame basis is used to overcome the effects of co-channel interference and fading. The implementation of the interface unit using ASIC technology is also discussed.
