This paper studies and designs the electric omnidirectional mobile platform which based on the Mecanum wheel for the robot automation assembly. The host computer communicates with the indoor positioning system and the mobile platform to remotely track and control the mobile platform. At the same time, the visualization module can view the movement trajectory of the mobile platform, the state of the platform and the positional relationship with the obstacle in real time, and can perform basic motion control and path planning and execution operations on the mobile platform. By properly arranging the location of the base station, the global positioning of the 100-m plant can be achieved, and the positioning accuracy can reach 10 cm, which is better applied to the development of spacecraft and provides technical support for the realization of smart factories in the future.
