A micro robot has been built and integrated into a structured infrared positioning sensing system. In the position sensing system the operation area is divided into sectors to allow multiple robots to operate simultaneously. The robot monitors its position whilst in motion and makes its own logical decisions. It can autonomously decide for the next action to execute. It is also able to avoid both dynamic or static obstacles by either sensing at possible collision or by anticipating obstacles from its position and position of others by means of acting on a set of given prioritised instructions. Errors in the system have been discussed and recommendations are made
