Simulation in the development of a control strategy for an automated guided vehicle system Academic Article uri icon


  • An automated guided vehicle system (AGVS) consists of several automated guided vehicles (AGV) operating concurrently to achieve a specific task. Decentralized, autonomous control of AGVS used for material handling in manufacturing environments is expected to lead to high system efficiency, flexibility and robustness. The simulations developed and used for the development process of a decentralized control methodology based on a hierarchical fuzzy behavior-based architecture for the control of an AGVS are presented.
