Abstract

The Smart Carry Trolley is a library-specific unit. There have been some studies done on ordinary trolleys but not focused on trolleys used in the library. During the pandemic time, this will help in minimizing contact with the trolley. The main goal of this trolley is to make it easier for library staff to carry, transport, and organize books in the library. The libraries that still use the ordinary trolley had to drive themselves off the trolley, which caused negative effects such as body ache and may have taken them a long time to complete because they had to return to move books many times. This makes it impossible for library staff to get around. Some even used their bare hands and did not use the trolley to carry and transport the books, this causes difficulties for library staff because by the end of the day they might experience hand, shoulder, and back pain. This will also take longer for them to finish their job as they must keep going back and forth to transport the books to the bookshelf. Therefore, the smart carry book trolley is a self-propelled Arduino Uno microcontroller used in this project, as well as an ultrasonic sensor for detecting humans and a DC motor to help move the trolley. The ultrasonic sensors will detect human movement and aid library staff in transferring books from one location to another. The test results on the ultrasonic sensor used show the operation of the smart carry book trolley. As a result, the library staff can enjoy their work without having to push the trolley.
