Abstract

This paper presents a navigation methodology for decentralized autonomous automated guided vehicles used for material handling. The navigation methodology is based on behavior-based control augmented with multirobot coordination behaviors and a priori waypoint determination. Results indicate that the developed methodology fuses well between the desire for optimal vehicle routes on the one hand and decentralized reactive operation on the other.
