In recent Automated Guided Vehicles (AGV) are emerging as useful technology assisting manufacturing and production in industries. These vehicles are used as advanced technology to help in the process of industrial automation. There are various methods of path planning of AGV like; Grid-based map methods, Potential field techniques, Fuzzy logic control, and Neural network algorithms. In this paper we are applying Grid based mapping with the help of AVR microcontroller kit, collision avoidance sensor, path following sensors, all integrated with LabVIEW for controlling and feedback operation. The objective of this paper is to design a prototype using Arduino board and LabVIEW software that will provide exact location and condition of AGV. Here we are developing an inexpensive, mobile and intelligent AGV prototype that will be interfaced with LabVIEW by use of toolkit named ‘LabVIEW interface for Arduino’ (LIFA) and Arduino-Uno board. The LabVIEW according to the sensor information given to the Arduino board gives commands for controlling the operation of the AGV. The communication between Arduino board situated on AGV and LabVIEW is achieved wirelessly by ZigBee module.
