To improve the loading and unloading efficiency of container terminals, the operation of the automated guided vehicle AGV is the key. However, the path planning, charging, resource allocation and other issues that exist in the operation of AGV have affected the efficiency of the automated terminal. Therefore, it is necessary to establish an effective data model, plan the best driving path, and realize the conflict-free charging and operation of the AGV. Experiments have proved that when charging is considered, it can reduce the running time of the AGV between the quay crane and the yard bridge, increase the operating speed of the AGV vehicle, and improve the operating efficiency of the automated terminal.
