A four-wheel-driven mobile robot vehicle that can move in the environment is a driverless ground vehicle. It is typically a sub-field of automation and information technology. This research discusses mobile vehicle robots and how they will pass into the external reality to achieve their goals without interacting with human beings. To understand the basics, it is essential to remember that many technical aspects and fields for the proper function of the robot must be observed and combined with a mobile robot: a control unit must integrate all of the following systems: conception and perception system by (sensors), the locomotion and kinematics systems, the navigation system and the localization system All of these systems to perform the mobile robot’s task or job in a logical manner. This manuscript aims primarily to develop and manufacture an uncrewed or driverless ground vehicle, which can navigate fully autonomous to user-defined Global Positioning System (GPS) points of reference. Having a Planned project is the most challenging task in creating a robot that could be saved by the automatic phase of a conventional RC vehicle, which includes: construction of a frame, installing engines on the chassis, and mounting wheels on the vehicle. It’s not just a robot that builds without planning. In addition, write the framework procedure so that the encrypted readings of the encoder control the journeyed distance. The robot movement is tested in a clear way, and the motor movement is controlled as a whole. Also, to design and build a mobile-wheeled robot that can continuously monitor and check predetermined points in the X-Y horizon plane using only the motion variables of the robot wheels and no other functional guide such as GPS. In pursuit of control of the Wheeled Mobile Robot car, the radar sensors, cameras, and other sensors needed were installed. MATLAB modeling Simultaneous simulation of UGV kinematics and dynamics. A specific program to monitor stop and go, velocity, the safety of the vehicle while the movement has been introduced. To compile UGV models and validate them. To collect and simulate dimensional data utilizing the selfsame MATLAB model from a manufactured UGV. In addition to this, the second aim of the study to charge mobile-wheeled robot systems with photovoltaic solar energy and estimate and submit the quantity of photovoltaic solar cells needed to charge self-powered solar UMV.
