Automated storage and retrieval system (AS/RS) is major automated storage method mainly used in warehouse and distribution centers. Objective of the study is to analyze expected travel time while performing storage/ travel request for randomized storage allocation and return to input-output dwell point policy. Single and Dual command cycle time expressions are verified through mathematical calculations and experimental observations.AS/RS model is prototyped with the help of Arduino Uno microcontroller board used as programmable controller system. Android interfacing makes system easy to access and control. Physical prototyping of AS/RS ensures better knowledge gain related to hardware, software and communication interfacing module.
