Navigation of decentralized autonomous automatic guided vehicles in material handling Academic Article uri icon


  • This paper presents a navigation methodology for decentralized autonomous automated guided vehicles used for material handling. The navigation methodology is based on behavior-based control augmented with multirobot coordination behaviors and a priori waypoint determination. Results indicate that the developed methodology fuses well between the desires for optimal vehicle routes on the one hand and decentralized reactive operation on the other.
