Abstract: This paper presents smart mobile robot for airport passenger luggage conveyance. In airport, baggage handler is used to transport passenger luggage to a boarding unit. The airport baggage handlers are driven and controlled by airport workers during boarding period. The use of airport workers to convey passengers luggage is not efficient in this modern technological world. Reason being that the workers can be tired, sick or absent at work. Therefore, mobile robot for luggage conveyance is required to handle such activities in the airport. This work is aimed at introducing mobile robot to the airport that would be used for such activities. The mobile robot system is made up of hardware and software. The hardware components were strictly selected for the tasks and the program codes written using embedded C language. The system was built and successfully tested in the airport.
