Objectives: To describe the design and implementation of an autonomous vehicle monitoring and guidance system (AGV) based on machine vision. Methods/Analysis: The design of each of the modules was established: Machine vision that obtains the position, orientation and identification of each AGV from the recognition of the detector codes. The wireless communication interface from the use of the Xbee module and that establishes the communication between the AGVs and the central host. And the central controller makes the decision of the host for each AGV as the control of traffic and movement. Findings: For each of these modules the relevant tests were carried out in 3 stages in which the first one tested the HMI that allows the user to control the whole system. The second stage tests were performed on each of the modules for one and two cameras, and the last stage examines the behavior of the complete system from the data obtained from the second stage. Improvements: By using a better resolution camera the system can operate with better results.
