An autonomous mobile vehicle needs to be developed to allow the vehicle to reach the desired destination using tracking and obstacle detection schemes. This paper concentrates on the vehicle navigation and obstacle detection. Vehicle navigation is carried out using Radio Frequency IDentification (RFID) technology. It is used to navigate the vehicle from source to destination. The obstacle detection is carried out using ultrasonic sensor. If any obstacles are detected, the information is sent to the operator who navigates the vehicle through Global System for Mobile communication (GSM).
