I&T Wish Smart Delivery Robotic System
(REF : W-0286)
Summary and Challenges This project aims to develop a comprehensive intelligent robots or robotic system for delivering heavy and large volume objects to designated locations within government facilities, thereby reducing the need of manual labour in daily operation, enhancing the human resources allocation, operational efficiency and occupational safety & health.
Expected Outcome

The purpose of this project is to design delivery robot with following feature:

  • able to deliver different kinds of object, such as:
    • Rations
    • Industrial raw materials and finished products
    • Meal
    • clothing items
    • Trash
  • able to attach with various types of containers for delivering captioned items
