Development of Automatic Guided Mobile Robot Using Magnetic Position Meter

Authors: Geun-Mo Kim, Young-Jae Ryoo


In this paper, an automatic guided mobile robot using a new magnetic position meter is described. In order to measure the lateral position of a mobile robot, a new magnetic position meter is developed. The magnetic position meter can detect the position of a magnetic wire on the center of road. A mobile robot in designed with a sensing system, a steering system and a driving system. The designed mobile robot is tested to verify the performance of automatic guidance.

Keywords: Magnet, Autonomous Vehicle, steering, magnetic position meter
