ABSTRACT

Nowadays most of the companies are concentrating on cost effectiveness. The toe vehicles which are used in factories are simple in construction and operated by a separate operator. This automatically increases the cost of labor. While conveyors and lift trucks are the most common solutions, automatic guided vehicles, or AGVs, are an increasingly viable alternative to both in the right application.

AGVs excel in applications where the pick-up
And drop-off points are repeatable, where the vehicle travels to predictable stops, especially over a long distance, and where you're dealing with the regular delivery of palletized or stable loads.

Our project is aimed at building the prototype of AGV and test how effective it works. The use of IR sensors makes the vehicle more effective as the sensing capacity increases. A small scale prototype was constructed and its performance was observed under various conditions.

INTRODUCTION

The term "automated guided vehicle" (AGV) is a general one that encompasses all transport systems capable of functioning without driver operation. The term "driverless" is often used in the context of automated guided vehicles to describe industrial trucks, used primarily in manufacturing and distribution settings that would conventionally have been driver-operated.

Since their introduction in 1955, automated guided...
