Abstract

The paper discusses the problem of pallet identification accuracy in the context of material handling process automation. The need to ensure the correctness and efficiency of the internal transport process performance has caused the necessity for developing solutions that can correctly identify the pallet's position by an autonomous mobile robot (AMR). Following this, the authors present the results of conducted tests focused on the problem of pallet detection and proper positioning of the AMR. They presented the main assumptions taken for the proper performance of the field tests and discussed the obtained results. The work ends up with a summary and directions for further research.

Keywords: autonomous mobile robot, reliability, accuracy, material handling process, automation
