Autonomous Laser Guided Vehicle for Book Deposition in a Library

Abstract:

Article Preview

This paper proposes a technology to automate the book deposition process in a generic Library layout. It includes usage of autonomous vehicle in the library that is guided by an assembly of lasers. To prove the practicability of this proposal a physical prototype of an autonomous robot has been developed. The robot acts as an external storage unit for books and is capable of delivering them from the initial pre-defined point to the desired final destination.
