Abstract: With the trend of world trade entering a period of rapid growth, the logistics industry is developing very rapidly. At the same time, it also has higher requirements for logistics handling and work efficiency. Therefore, this article designs a robot with mechanical arm and claw crawler tracking for unmanned logistics warehouse and production workshop. The robot has the functions of detecting signals, identifying signals, autonomously grasping objects, and transporting objects. Intelligent tracking robot is an industrial robot that can be automated for handling operations such as flexible grasping and handling of materials. The robot can automatically do tracking, self-grasping objects, and independent transportation of objects. Compared with the traditional crawler transport robot, the robot has the characteristics of fewer sensors, high accuracy, sensitive response and good adaptability. This article details the robot design process and functional module analysis.

Keywords: crawler robot; handling robot; mechanical arm; autonomous tracking.
