Mechatronics Final Year Project @ University of Mauritius
Supervised by Dr S.Venkannah
Some of the features are:
About 95% of the structure, motors and sensors were obtained from Scrap.
The AGV can self-troubleshoot.
Use of Voice synthesiser to increase safety in Warehouse.
Use Computer Vision to increase safety and precision.
Sonar sensor to detect obstacles.
Load Cell to measure weight of Pallet.
All the interfaces, stepper motor drivers and PSU were tailor made.
Human Machine Interface used to control the AGV.
Can operate in Autonomous. Semi automatic or Manual modes.
HMI provides troubleshooting information.
The AGV can be controlled by Smart-phones, Ipads, laptops, etc any device with a Wifi interface.
Reverse Engineering techniques were used.
PID control was used for Line Following.
