Title: AUTOMATIC TRAVEL DEVICE AND AUTOMATIC TRAVEL SYSTEM
Abstract:
Provided is a technique that makes it possible to easily realize control for having a prescribed operation executed by an automatic travel device at a prescribed position on a travel route. An automatic travel device (2) is an automatic travel device that travels along a line (1) arranged on a travel route, and is provided with a detection unit (line sensor (21)) that detects the line (1), and a control unit that controls the operation of the automatic travel device (2) on the basis of the detection results of the detection unit. The control unit determines a width (W) of the line (1) on the basis of the detection results of the detection unit. Also, when the determined width (W) of the line (1) is smaller than a prescribed standard, the control unit causes the automatic travel device (2) to execute a travel operation of traveling along the line (1). When the determined width (W) of the line (1) is at least the prescribed standard, the control unit causes the automatic travel device (2) to execute a prescribed operation that is different from the travel operation.
