The battery-operated A.C.T.® is an AMOVA in-house development. The vehicle is guided by laser and moves completely autonomously over routes fixed in the route layout. A fleet of several vehicles is controlled by a host computer that ensures that both the optimum route and the nearest free A.C.T.® is selected to perform the current order.

A tried and approved safety system detects both persons and obstacles on the trackway and stops the vehicle autonomously. The system decides autonomously whether a transport order can be accepted and performed or whether it uses waiting times in production to charge the batteries. At semi- or fully automated battery-changing stations fully discharged batteries can be completely exchanged for fully charged ones or can be partly charged when convenient (“opportunity charging”)
