Design and Fabrication of Automated Guided Sweeping Vehicle (AGSV)

ABSTRACT– In our project Programmed Circuit and IR sensors are used to make up of Automated Guided Sweeping Vehicle. The methodology used is to avoid the use of markers and use circuit board programmed using C and the AGSV is used for sweeping and picking metal and sharp waste and moping and vacuuming using a programmed circuit. By using EPROM it can be used in FMS. AGV’s are more often used in industrial applications to move materials around a manufacturing facility or warehouse. Hence a non-fuel AGSV using rechargeable battery power source which can be used indoors for industrial application for the above mentioned problems are formulated.

INTRODUCTION (AGSV):

We are eliminating the need of conveyers, pallet trolley, etc to handle material transfer in heavy industries. For purpose we are designing automated guided vehicle controlled by microprocessor controller. In the available methods of material handling manpower, fuel power is used. By the end of 2020, fuel deposit in the world completely depleted.To avoid this type of problems and reduce manpower requirement we need other type of automation is called automated track guided Vehicle. The microcontroller is used to control the vehicle path automatically. The rechargeable battery is supplying power to the automated track guided vehicle. The already power stored in the battery is used to drive the DC motor that causes the movement to AGV. The speed of rotation of DC motor i.e., velocity of AGSV is controlled by the microprocessor controller. The existing AGVs, pallet trucks, trolley use petrol or diesel as fuel for running and for operating them we use the manpower.

These types of vehicles consume liter of fuel for a period Automated Guided Vehicle or Automatic Guided Vehicle is a mobile robot that follows markers or wires on floor or uses vision. The of one hour.For overcoming this we designed AGV which is drawn power from the storage battery. The power stored in the battery is used to drive the DC motor that causes the movement to AGV. The speed of rotation of DC motor i.e., velocity of AGSV is controlled by the microprocessor controller.Battery assembled on the AGSV is easily replaceable and detachable, used for charging the battery, while the AGSV is under roof. Path programmed for the AGSV in a micro controller chip can be altered when required.

ADVANTAGES AND DISADVANTAGES

(a) ADVANTAGES:

  • Low Cost Automation.
  • Battery power source (Not fuel).
  • Pollution free.
  • By using EPROM it can be used in FMS.

(b) DISADVANTAGES
