Design Of AGV With Mobile Communication

Automatic guided vehicles (AGVs) that run automatically and are controlled by computers have been used in a wide range of fields and applications, such as on factory production floors, in warehouses, and in distribution centres, and have received more attention as a mode of transportation because they do not produce CO2 emissions that harm the environment. Due to the abundant availability of human labour at lower costs, these are rarely implemented in India. Even then implementing AGVs will bring many benefits to the organization like improved safety, reliability and efficiency. The design of AGV can be quite challenging and the cost and performance of the system are greatly impacted. The main objective of this work is to design and develop a cost effective AGV. This paper presents the design of AGV and its control using ATmega16, along with its fabrication which is a line follower. The robot is reprogrammable and changes can be made so it suits the real industrial environment. It is allowed to follow accurately the magnetic tape path laid along the flat floors. Test runs are conducted by programming for a predesigned path providing it with an imitating industrial environment and also obstacles in its path. PID control is also included in this vehicle for smoother movements along the path. Keywords: AGV, ATmega16, Line follower
