Paper Abstract

A mobile robot for a ham industry has been developed. The features of the factory, limited environment, sliding floor, and the necessity for a high storage flexibility makes impossible the usage of conventional transport systems, conveyors, automatic guided vehicles, etc. The developed system permits us to integrate the pervious transport system, that was based on fork lift trucks, with the advantage that in the case of contingency an operator can drive the mobile robot as a fork lift truck. In this way, the transport and storage can be done using fork lift trucks, mobile robots, or both, and all of them controlled by a planning program running in a Sun Sparcstation10.
