With the development of artificial intelligence technology, various sectors of industry have developed. Among them, the autonomous vehicle industry has developed considerably, and research on self-driving control systems using artificial intelligence has been extensively conducted. Studies on the use of image-based deep learning to monitor autonomous driving systems have recently been performed. In this paper, we propose an advanced control for a serving robot. A serving robot acts as an autonomous line-follower vehicle that can detect and follow the line drawn on the floor and move in specified directions. The robot should be able to follow the trajectory with speed control. Two controllers were used simultaneously to achieve this. Convolutional neural networks (CNNs) are used for target tracking and trajectory prediction, and a proportional-integral-derivative controller is designed for automatic steering and speed control. This study makes use of a Raspberry PI, which is responsible for controlling the robot car and performing inference using CNN, based on its current image input.
