With the development of factory automation, intelligent manufacturing system technology, and three-dimensional automated warehouses, an automatic ground vehicle (AGV) became an essential part of controlling the discrete logistics management system within a facility. The scope of the AGV application and technical capability have been rapidly developed in recent years. However, it is highly time-consuming and resource-intensive to develop a comprehensive AGV platform in both industrial setting and academic environment to design and control of an AGV system. This paper introduces a platform for conducting AGV research and deployment, which consists of the hardware prototyping and entire software system development. By using this platform, users can readily develop customized AGV systems or verify their self-developed algorithms.
