Mobile robot nowadays has been used in various sectors of business ranged from sciences and industries to servicing and entertainment, and has posed very unique challenges to the researcher. Due to its autonomous nature, it requires an extensive sensing system to read the surrounding working environment, sufficient controller for data processing and decision-making, and also a very stable actuator system to actuate the robot response with respect to the working environment changes. This report details the final year project of designing and implementing an autonomous wheel-based mobile robot, which has a capability to navigate according to a predetermined path while avoiding any obstacle on its route. It is also equipped with small manipulator to enable simple pick and place action: picking a small object from a predefined location and placing it at another predetermined location on the floor. Hence, in order for it to do all those task, the robot fundamentally consists of four main building functional blocks: (1) Navigation (2) Position tracking (3) Obstacle detection and avoidance (4) Manipulator & gripper control block (Since the robot movement is based on a predetermined plan, the path planner block is skipped in this project). For further improvement, some fine-tuning on the manipulator structure and programming, as well as the development of a user interface to enable to user to select the robot movement path are highly recommended. In summary, the project has been successfully completed, providing a basement for future mobile robot development in UTP.
