Abstract: Un-uniform illumination is the main problem in autonomous robot system. It causes the robots cannot detect another robot, obstacle and other environment. Camera system also needs a uniform illumination for capturing image. Furthermore, autonomous robot system needs uniform illumination during the operation. The objective of this research is to design and implement uniform lighting system for autonomous robot. In this research, the lighting system is developed by using standard and low-cost fluorescent lamps. The result of this research is lighting system configuration that can be implemented for illumination systems in a workspace area of autonomous robot.
