Building a sport robot that can defeat human players in sport activities is the aim of many researchers and engineers in robotic related fields. This paper presents a design of a mobile badminton robot that can serve a shuttlecock as a human player in a standard badminton court. A transporting shuttlecock system was designed to preload six shuttlecocks. A serving mechanism was designed to swing a standard badminton racquet to hit a dropping shuttlecock timely. The challenges and the proposed solutions that involved during the development of the shuttlecock serving system and serving mechanism are discussed. Findings indicate that the proposed design is able to preload and serve six shuttlecocks continuously with a success serving rate of 89% in a standard badminton court when the time between swinging the racquet and dropping a shuttlecock was optimized.
