Autonomous Delivery Robot with Manipulator for Indoor Materials Delivery

I&T Wish Autonomous Delivery Robot with Manipulator for Indoor Materials Delivery
(REF : W-0340)
Summary and Challenges The purpose of this project is to develop indoor robot that automatically deliver and receive objects / materials periodically or by request to enhance office administration efficiency and reduce the occupational safety hazard of manual handling.
Expected Outcome
  1. Integration of a minimum 4kg payload robotic arm on the Delivery Robot.
  2. Trial on Delivery Robot equipped with Light Detection and Ranging (LIDAR) to navigate around an EMSD office to deliver documents/materials with positioning accuracy of +/- 3cm within 5 meters.
  3. The Delivery Robot shall construct an electronic map using simultaneous localization and mapping (SLAM) for navigation within the EMSD office.
  4. Safely avoiding persons/object at full speed with loading not less than 30kg.
  5. Able to pass through corridors at 75cm width.
  6. The Delivery Robot shall be able to move to designated location to pick and place object / material.
  7. Battery supporting full load operation of 8 hours or more.
  8. Connect to wireless network (e.g. WiFi, Bluetooth) to follow web-based programme, send and receive commands, messages, and monitor its real-time location.
  9. Equipped with temperature, humidity, air quality and light sensors for environmental monitoring and transmission back to server for storage.
Expected Trial Duration 4 months
