Sectionalized Motion Control for Automatic Guided Vehicle
In this work, an approach called sectionalized motion control (SMC) was proposed in order to achieve control with high precision and low energy consumption for the entire AGV tracking process. In this method, according to the characteristics of the AGV’s early, middle and terminal motion phases, the neural dynamics-based tracking, energy-efficient tracking, and model predictive technologies were adopted. Furthermore, a simulation using Matlab software was performed in order to verify the proposed approach. The simulation results showed that SMC is capable of providing smooth, energy-efficient, robust and globally stable control for the AGV system.
