Since there is going to be a fuel depletion in the world in the coming days, this automated vehicle can be an alternative solution for the above purpose. This paper deals with the existing different types of automated vehicles available, their selection, principle of operation of the proposed model, merits and demerits of this Automated Guided Vehicle and its plan of future work.
