Vi utbildar för framtiden och skapar samhällsnytta genom vår forskning som levandegörs i nära samarbete med näringslivet. Vi bedriver forskning inom computer science, datateknik, software engineering och interaktionsdesign - från grundforskning till direkta tillämpningar. Institutionen har en stark internationell prägel och är delad mellan Chalmers och Göteborgs universitet.
We are engaged in research and education across the full spectrum of computer science, computer engineering, software engineering, and interaction design, from foundations to applications. We educate for the future, conduct research with high international visibility, and create societal benefits through close cooperation with businesses and industry. The department is joint between Chalmers and the University of Gothenburg.

The using of robots has become essential in some areas of life and an active element in the production process. Some of world's largest factories began to use and increase using them because of their accuracy, speed, and low costs. The robots have become a strong competitor to the manpower, which has been sometimes a burden on business owners due to the high wages, labor protection laws, etc. In general, the most focused of factory owners is flexibility, quality of work and low cost, especially when there is great competition between factories to provide the most suitable price for better quality. For this reason, the using of robots has increased that some of them are fully or partially dependent on them, while the role of man is limited to supervising only their work.
The thesis is based on creating a robot which can transport products in factories over medium or long distances and sorting them into specific shelves. The goal of the robot is to replace some human-driven trucks to provide manpower and to make the work more effective. To complete this work, the robot 3D design was created by SolidWorks and some parts of the robot were printed with a 3D printer. Therefore, the electronic circuits and the connection have been theoretically tested by the circuit simulation program PROTEUS. In the next step, the 3D printed parts and the other ordered parts were assembled to make the robot. The robot was tested in terms of lift movement, sensors, line tracking, shelf number reading, avoiding the wall, and fixing some of the errors faced the project.
