Automation has become a very important part of our lives. More and more human functions are being automated every day. This brings enormous benefits in terms of efficiency and technological advancement. Indeed an important criterion of any advanced society is the level of automation within it. This too is the ultimate goal of this project. The purpose of this project was to automate one of the last labour centric environments, the office. And the specific function we are seeking to automate is that of pouring a cup of water into a cup in the middle of a meeting. To achieve this, a function specific Automated Guided Vehicle (AGV) was built. This robot functions as a dispenser; hence the name Automated Guided Dispenser (AGD). The physical platform was fabricated using Poly Methyl Methacrylate Acrylic. The electronic circuit was assembled. The control function is performed by a PIC Microcontroller. The program was also written. The mechanical components were either fabricated or bought. A guidance system was also developed. Once the individual tasks were completed the AGD was assembled and tested. The AGD design and development was successful and it works as planned.
