A grasping device for a mobile robot was developed to automatically grip existing caits and transport them from one position to another. The basic idea is to exploit that most caits have a robust bottom frame, where the wheels are attached. A firm attachment of a device to this frame makes it possible to transport the carts without any additional docking mechanism or other major modification to the cart. The paper discusses the development, implementation and experience with using the grasping device.
