This paper presents a method for trajectory control, based on feedback linearization to guide an Automatic Guided Vehicle (AGV). The novelty of this work, is the adaptation of a reference trajectory with respect to a desired velocity in real-time to avoid collisions using a time-scaling mechanism. Employing this mechanism, collision avoidance by braking is implemented. Implementation and experimental evaluation of the integrated design of trajectory control, time-scaling and collision avoidance is performed on a real AGV platform.
