Abstract This paper presents an overview of an autonomous robotic system for material handling. The system is being developed by extending the functionalities of traditional AGVs to be able to operate reliably and safely in highly dynamic environments. Traditionally, the reliable functioning of AGVs relies on the availability of adequate infrastructure to support navigation. In the target environments of our system, such infrastructure is difficult to setup in an efficient way. Additionally, the location of objects to handle are unknown, which requires runtime object detection and tracking. Another requirement to be fulfilled by the system is the ability to generate trajectories dynamically, which is uncommon in industrial AGV systems. ©2009 IEEE.
