In order to realize agricultural automation and large-scale production, a greenhouse automated guided vehicle is designed. It is equipped with a objective table and retractor device, using a track-type transmitting motion. The automatic guided vehicle is imported into the ANSYS through the graphical data conversion. The finite element model of the structure is generated by grid division. The finite element analysis of the structure is carried out. The strength and stiffness characteristics of the structure are calculated in the static analysis. The frequency of the vehicle calculated by modal analysis. The results show that the stiffness and strength meets the requirements of using, and the resonance damage can be avoided by avoiding the natural frequency of the vehicle. The greenhouse automatic guided vehicle can quickly transport materials to designated locations.
