Abstract: Automatic guided vehicle is the concept which deals with the transfer the jobs or material handling. There are various methods to transfer the material or material handling for ex. Conveyor system, conveyor system is used to convey the materials industrial jobs from one section to another section. Conveyor section is quite expensive and it is mostly preferred for the large scale industries. Also it is quite electromechanically built, so it is quite power consumable. The automated guided vehicle is the project in which it is self-energy consumable that is it is an active device, it doesnâ€™t require external power supply to deliver that materials. This project is mostly used for the small scale industries, because it is used to carry small distance or minimum location transfer of materials. This project contains four shock-ups at the four positions that are used like legs of this system. This machine also contains the rack and pinion arrangement to absorb the energy that is comes from the weight and stores the energy into the system and delivers the material to that position.
