In the field of logistics, the storehouse management plays an important role. It is difficult to handle a large warehouse only with human. Therefore, the implementation of path tracking AGV robot is investigated as an automated solution. From the requirements of warehouse service, the hardware structure of robot is demonstrated in this work. Then, the software design is built to operate in real-time. Besides, overall system is scheduled to realize in various cases. The monitoring program in host PC will track the actual position of AGV along the trajectory. From the experimental design of AGV robot, the feasibility and capability of design and control approach which is proposed in this paper are proved.
