Abstract(in English) Navigation is a basic feature of mobile robots. Self-navigating robots can be used in industry to moving loads from one place to another without human interaction. In this paper, we propose a novel approach to pick a payload placed in a given path with minimum number of motors and sensors. The navigation is based on lines on the floor, and the robot is capable of finding and picking the load. This robot is capable of navigating straight lines, 90 degree junctions, T junctions and crossed junctions, where scientist find difficult to implement with inexpensive equipment. This paper presents a low-cost approach which needed minimum number of equipment. The proposed approach demonstrated high accuracy with the minimal of low-cost parts.
