Abstract

This paper presents a review on design and control of automated guided vehicle systems. We address most key related issues including guide-path design, estimating the number ofvehicles, vehicle scheduling, idle-vehicle positioning, battery management, vehicle routing, and conflict resolution. We discuss and classify important models and results from key publications in literature on automated guided vehicle systems, including often-neglected areas, such as idle-vehicle positioning and battery management. In addition, we propose a decision framework for design and implementation of automated guided vehicle systems, and suggest some fruitful research directions.

Keywords: material handling system, automated guided vehicle, literature overview

JEL Classification: M, R4
