The article is focused on braking simulation of automated guided vehicle (AGV). The brake system is used with a disc brake and with hydraulic control. In the first step, the formula necessary for braking force at the start of braking is derived. The stopping distance is 1.5 meters. Subsequently, a mathematical model of braking is created into which the formula of the necessary braking force is applied. The mathematical model represents a motion equation that is solved in the software Matlab by an approximation method. Next a simulation is created using Matlab software and the data of simulation are displayed in the graph. The transport speed of the vehicle is 1 〖m.s〗^(-1) and the weight of the vehicle is 6000 kg including load. The aim of this article is to determine the braking time of the device depending from the input data entered, which represent the initial conditions of the braking process.
