Coordination of AGVs in an industrial environment
This demonstration aims to show the decentralized coordination of the navigation system of highly autonomous Automated Guided Vehicles (AGVs) integrated in a real industrial environment. These vehicles are used for goods delivery tasks between different points of the production system. The navigation part consists on calculating and following the trajectory to reach the goal, which is calculated considering the plant layout and recalculated to avoid the non-modeled obstacles when they are sensed during the navigation. The coordination part is based on a decentralized architecture where each vehicle broadcasts the information about its state in the working environment, and by combining all these states in a local way, each AGV decides which action to take.
