This paper presents RoboCart, a proof-of-concept
prototype of a robotic shopping assistant for the visually
impaired. The purpose of RoboCart is to help visually impaired
customers navigate a typical grocery store and carry purchased
items. The hardware and software components of the system
are presented. For localization, RoboCart relies on RFID tags
deployed at various locations in the store. For navigation, Robo-
Cart relies on laser range finding. Experiences with deploying
RoboCart in a real grocery store are described. The current
status of the system and its limitations are outlined.
