An automated guided vehicle (AGV) is a truck equipped with electromagnetic or optical automatic guiding devices, able to run according to a prescribed guide path, having protected prevention and other load shifting functions. Being a track without the driver in industrial applications, AGV adopts a rechargeable battery as the power source. The route of travel and motion of AGV can be controlled through the computer or electromagnetic path-following system. AGV moves or acts depending on the message from the electromagnetic path stick on the floor.
The significant feature of AGV is unmanned driving. The automatic guidance system equipped on AGV can help the car run following a predetermined route automatically and deliver the goods to the destination. The other features of AGV are great flexibility, a high degree of automation, and intelligence.
The route of AGV can be adjusted according to the changing requirements like storage location and production process, and the cost of operation route changing is low in comparison with traditional conveyor belt and rigid transmission line. Loading and unloading structure equipped on AGV can connect with other logistics devices automatically, achieving automation of loading & unloading, handling process. A miniature motor for AGV is a kind of mini drive motor with small power, and the main structure consists of a brushless DC motor and gearbox. The drive motor adopts a brushless DC motor as the drive source, and the gearbox can adopt a planetary gearbox or worm gearbox.
AGV has a subsystem with capacities of speed control and braking, which includes motor, gearbox, drive, control, and drive circuit. The drive system is generally closed-loop and open-loop. The former often adopts a servo DC motor, while the latter adopts a stepper motor.
