Advanced line follower material handling device is a combination of mechanical & electrical ideas. Here concepts from mechanical engineering provide rigidity as well as primary vertical motion by scissor mechanism to the device. Electrical stream provide required automation with the help of microcontroller and its output and input devices. Previously there are many ideas regarding to the topic such as Automated Guided Vehicle or Line follower robot with obstacle avoidance but here we merge various concepts to contribute to the final output. This device is a material handling system that uses independently operated self-propelled vehicle guided along defined pathways. The vehicles are powered by on-board batteries that allowed many hours of operation between recharging. A distinguishing feature of the “line follower material handling device” compared to rail guided vehicle system and most conveyor system is that the pathways are unobtrusive.
