Abstract

This paper proposes an optimised design of an autonomous delivery robot while adopting the latest technologies from the different branching fields of robotics, artificial intelligence, and tele-communication. As a prospective representation of a user-centric robot design, the proposal is design with the major focus on maximizing users’ satisfaction throughout every human–robot interaction (HRI) touchpoints. By the use of sensor fusion techniques along with the deployment of an image-detection-based technique accompanying the point-cloud-detection-based path-planning methodology, the robot delivery would be optimised with effective path-planning and obstacle avoidance capability. With the extension of 5G connectivity, it is proposed that the real-time status update and video stream would enable greater efficiency in terms of remote monitoring and centralised robot administration.
