Abstract

The main scope of this paper is to design a robot that automatically moves pallets around a model warehouse floor. In this paper, the requirement of the conveyors and pallet trolleys etc., to handle material transfer in heavy industries is eliminated. For this purpose, an automated guided vehicle controlled by micro controller is designed. Battery, micro controller and motor driving mechanism are the three mechanisms this "Automated Guided Vehicle”. These AGV’s are more flexible, highly intelligent and has versatile material-handling systems. It offers an alternative to fixed-path conveyors and overhead materials-handling equipment’s. It also provides a very suitable answer for the problem of integrating a new automated transportation line into an available transportation environment. The vehicle path is controlled automatically by using micro controller. The rechargeable battery is supplying power to the automated guided vehicle. It is equipped with an obstacle detection system which helps the system to avoid collisions during operation. Infrared sensors are used for the above purpose.

Keywords: microcontroller, sensor, flexible management system, vehicle, automation motor driving mechanism
