AGV systems are now becoming widely used in automatic material handling systems. One of the issues arising in applications is routing. This paper presents a bi-directional path layout and an algorithm for routing AGVs without conflicts. Mathematical relationships among certain key parameters of path and vehicle are derived to minimize the space requirements(More)
Automated Guided Vehicle (AGV) systems offer flexibility and automation required by Flexible Manufacturing Systems (FMS). Previous research on AGV systems mainly focuses on the performance of the task completion time and the AGV utilization in dispatching and routing. However, as energy shortage and pollution to environment become major concerns and the(More)
