A Master-Slave Separate Parallel Intelligent Mobile Robot Used for Autonomous Pallet Transportation

Guo Li, Rui Lin, Maohai Li, Rongchuan Sun, Songhao Piao
2019 Applied Sciences  
A compact driving unit was designed and used to ensure access to the narrow free entry under the pallets. It was also possible for the mobile robot to perform a synchronous pallet lifting action.  ...  Compared with the traditional forklift AGV (Automated Guided Vehicle), the mobile robot has the advantages of more compact structure, higher expandability and safety.  ...  We would like to take the opportunity to thank the reviewers for their thoughtful and meaningful comments. Conflicts of Interest: The authors declare no conflict of interest.  ...
