Abstract: Badminton is one of the most popular sports currently in society. Badminton players are of a wide range from the young children to the elderly and different genders. As a result of its popularity, badminton equipment such as badminton racquet, bag, shuttlecock, net, and indoor shoes are becoming more readily available and higher in demand. Inventions that assist in the badminton training has also been more prevalent and rifer. One of such invention that is more recognized is the shuttlecock launcher that benefits training. However, there has yet to have any shuttlecock collector robot out in the market. Thus, the purpose of this multi-part project is to design and develop an autonomous shuttlecock collecting robot that facilitates the collection of shuttlecocks for training, allowing the players to focus and concentrate on their training. This report will discuss on the mechanical collection mechanism for the autonomous shuttlecock collecting robot, the weight at which it would not cause damage to the badminton flooring and the wheel types and traction. In the project, the mechanical mechanism designs are filtered using functional analysis and evaluated using the morphological chart. While the chosen type of collection mechanism is tested with different material types to determine which causes the least amount of irreversible damage to the shuttlecock. The badminton flooring standard specifications are compared to the weight of the robot to verify if the robot does any damage to the badminton flooring. Along with the type of wheels and traction that would affect the movement of the robot.
