This paper presents a procedure to design the AGV travel mechanism. The philosophy of an "AGV travel mechanism" is introduced. A three-stage procedure to design a robust AGV mechanism is presented. The procedure consists of the design of composite-floor-path system, cell control system, and collision free zone system. Examples are given to validate the conceptual models designed by the proposed procedure. Results show the AGV travel mechanism thus obtained is economic, efficient and robust.
