Material Handler Robot

Abstract

The goal of this project was to create a robot that could identify an item, determine the goal location for the item, and then navigate to the location and place the object on the correct shelf. We used a host of different technologies to bring this project together. We used a lidar to help with the mapping and localization of the robot in the space. We used cameras with a prebuilt Neural Net to determine what the object is on the top of the robot. The robot has a weight capacity of 30 lbs. and can easily move items of the same size. In summary, our Material Handler Robot could be utilized in many industries such as in storage units, warehouses, grocery stores, or even for personal use in garages.
