Robot technology is constantly finding new applications. This article presented the design of a system for automating the process of marking the locations for stands in large scale exhibition spaces. It is a true service robot application, with a high level of autonomy. It is also an excellent example of what mobile robot localization can be used for. The robot system solves a real task, adding value for the customer, and has been in operation at the Stockholm International Fairs since August 2003. It has now become an integral part of the standard routines of marking. With its help, the time for a standard job from 8 h by two people has been cut to 4 h with one person and one robot. Using more than one robot further increases the gain in productivity.
