Abstract


This paper addresses a working prototype of an autonomous fork lifter industrial robot. It includes four encoder DC motors to move the whole assembly and two DC motors to run the lifter. The proposed system is based on a chain mechanism used in moving the fork. The body of the system is made up of aluminum and partially Iron alloy with the dimensions of (21×12×2). In order to ensure the smooth movement of the robot, the body of the system moves with the help of continuous track or tank treads. We used Arduino mega to drive motors for the locomotion of the robot. We also used the camera vision to detect the boxed luggage to be replaced somewhere. The camera and the whole system operates with raspberry pi microcontroller.
