This paper describes the development of a low-cost autonomous mobile robot for transporting distributed objects in a manufacturing application. A VEX mobile robot kit is utilized to design and construct a prototype robot that is employed in a model object transfer task. For autonomous operation, the behaviour-based programming method is employed to build two complex behaviours that are sequentially executed. The performance of the designed robot is evaluated by measuring the time taken to transport up to five objects to the goal location. Experimental results indicate that the prototype robot can successfully transport objects to the goal and re-grasp unsuccessfully manipulated objects.
