Material Handling is an important activity within the larger system by which material is moved, stored, and tracked in commercial infrastructure. The primary goal of this project is to optimize material transportation systems in laboratories and small-scale industries by using Automated Guided Vehicle. An Automated Guided Vehicle is the emerging trend in this field that uses independently operated, self-propelled vehicles guided along the defined route in the facility for easy and durable operations. The most common application of such a system is to move materials around a manufacturing facility or warehouse.


An Automated Guided Vehicle for transporting material from the storage area to the required work areas is designed and fabricated. Here the Automated Guided Vehicle is navigated by RFID tags which is the current trend for navigating the AGV system. Implementing this technique would reduce the time, and also the transportation will be fully automated which would be a new and advanced environment to work in. It can almost carry weights up to 50 kg in single transportation to the workstation. It is designed in such a way that it can be used in both industrial and commercial areas. The main objective is to fabricate a simple and cost-efficient AGV which was later achieved.
