|Abstract: ||Automated guided vehicles (AGVs) are being increasingly used for intelligent transportation and distribution of materials in warehouses and auto-production lines. In this paper, a preliminary hazard analysis of an AGV’s critical components is conducted by the approach of Failure Modes and Effects Criticality Analysis (FMECA). To implement this research, a particular AGV transport
system is modelled as a phased mission. Then, Fault tree analysis (FTA) is adopted to model the causes of phase failure, enabling the probability of success in each phase and hence mission success to be determined. Through this research, a promising technical approach is established,
allowing us to identify the critical AGV components and the crucial mission phases of AGVs at the design stage.|
