ABSTRACT
This article describes an innovative automatic storage system based on the Raspberry Pi. It substantiates the grounds of the undertaken subject and presents an overview of existing solutions of the automatic storage. Moreover, the type and structure of the machine were selected and the analysis of the kinematics and dynamics was made in the project. The article presents the mechanical construction of the machine, describes the choice of structural elements and actuators, and develops the control system with an algorithm using the Raspberry Pi. Furthermore, an interface based on a touch-screen display cooperating with a single board computer was designed. One of the most important features of the device is its modularity and the possibility of individual configuration of the module responsible for storage, depending on the available storage space in which it is possible to install an automatic storage system: • vertically with the selection of a certain number of containers in the width and height, • horizontally with the selection of a certain number of containers in the width and depth, • horizontally and vertically with a choice of a certain number of containers in the width and depth, and defining the number of modules responsible for the storage in height. The final stage of the project was to verify the activities of the designed solutions based on tests on a prototype of the storage device. More precisely, it was tested on a machine prepared for a particular customer and a chosen configuration system, which is a combination of the triune manipulator of vertical storage controlled in an open loop.
