Design and Modeling of Automated Guided Vehicle Systems using Arduino
Ajay M. Patel,Dishank Upadhyay,Saurabh Nuwal
The Automatic Guided Vehicle (AGV) refers a type of system that can be used in production as well as in other industries. This system includes a battery operated remote sensing locomotive (carrier) on which a small lift is provided, specific path over which it moves, sensors for sensing the obstructions on the path of the carrier.
The main focus of this study is to make AGVs with the convenient materials, simple and applicable routing system and more importantly reducing the cost and increase the flexibility.
In this paper is to build a prototype of an Automated Guided Vehicle (AGVs) model that can move on a flat surface with its four driving wheels. The prototype is able to follow line on floor with the Arduino mega microcontroller as it main brain that control all the navigation and responses to the environment. The ability to follow line on floor is an advantage of this prototype as it can be further developed to do more complicated task in real life. To follow the line, the microcontroller is attached to a sensor that continuously reflects to the surface condition. It has also been attached with an ultrasonic sensor for the detection of object. In this paper implicates of designing and fabrication of the hardware and circuitry. AGV is therefore suitable for automating material handling in batch production and mixed model production.
