An Unmanned-Automated Guided Vehicle (U-AGV) is a wheel based computer controlled system that runs inside an industrial environment and operates without human intervention while in contact with the ground. It helps in transportation of raw materials and final products to different distribution units. Many industries like automotive, chemical, manufacturing etc. has a setup to move heavy and hazardous materials by employing human resources and manual vehicles. This process consumes time in turn increasing the expenditure of the entire product and also human life is at stake. The present work is an attempt to overcome these disadvantages by developing the proof of concept of AGV that can be deployed in material handling systems. An articulated robotic arm is used to shift materials and for testing the sample using a framework known as ROS. An automatic test facility is developed for demonstration of an industrial environment. Automatic sample tester will determine the parameters from the samples provided by the AGV. An application is developed to determine the position of the robot with respect to the stations and also battery percentage of the robot.

Abstract


An Unmanned-Automated Guided Vehicle (U-AGV) is a wheel based computer controlled system that runs inside an industrial environment and operates without human intervention while in contact with the ground. It helps in transportation of raw materials and final products to different distribution units. Many industries like automotive, chemical, manufacturing etc. has a setup to move heavy and hazardous materials by employing human resources and manual vehicles. This process consumes time in turn increasing the expenditure of the entire product and also human life is at stake. The present work is an attempt to overcome these disadvantages by developing the proof of concept of AGV that can be deployed in material handling systems. An articulated robotic arm is used to shift materials and for testing the sample using a framework known as ROS. An automatic test facility is developed for demonstration of an industrial environment. Automatic sample tester will determine the parameters from the samples provided by the AGV. An application is developed to determine the position of the robot with respect to the stations and also battery percentage of the robot.
