Autonomous Delivery Robot

Autonomous Delivery Robot


Brief Description:

The Autonomous Delivery Robot project aims to design and build a small robotic system capable of delivering packages or groceries to specified locations within a campus or neighborhood. The robot will be equipped with various sensors and software systems to detect and avoid obstacles, ensuring safe and efficient deliveries.


  • Navigation and Mapping: Develop a robust navigation system that enables the robot to create maps of its environment and plan efficient routes to specified delivery points.
  • Obstacle Detection and Avoidance: Implement sensors such as LiDAR, ultrasonic, or cameras to detect and avoid obstacles in real time, ensuring the robot can navigate around people, vehicles, and other impediments.
  • Autonomous Operation: Enable the robot to operate autonomously, requiring minimal human intervention. The primary goal is to deliver packages from a source location to a specified destination accurately.
  • User Interaction: Create a user-friendly interface for users to input delivery requests, track their deliveries, and interact with the robot if necessary.
  • Safety and Reliability: Ensure the robot operates safely, including emergency stop mechanisms and reliable communication systems. The robot should be able to handle unexpected situations effectively.
  • Efficiency and Sustainability: Optimize the robot's energy consumption, speed, and delivery time, as well as consider sustainable power sources such as batteries or solar panels.
  • Customization: Design the robot to adapt to different types of payloads, allowing it to carry a variety of packages or groceries.


  • Functional Autonomous Robot: A functional autonomous delivery robot capable of navigating through a campus or neighborhood, avoiding obstacles, and delivering packages or groceries to specified locations.
  • User-Friendly Interface: A user-friendly interface for placing delivery requests, tracking deliveries, and interacting with the robot.
  • Reliable and Safe System: A reliable and safe robotic system that can handle various environmental conditions and unexpected situations.
  • Improved Delivery Efficiency: Improved efficiency in delivery processes, potentially reducing delivery times and costs.
  • Scalable Platform: A scalable and adaptable platform that can be customized for various applications, including last-mile delivery, medical supply transport, and more.
  • Team Knowledge: Valuable experience and knowledge in robotics, navigation systems, and human-robot interaction for project team members.
  • Future Developments:Potential for future developments and commercial applications in the autonomous delivery industry.
