Look into autonomous office mail delivery robots successfully used by large firms.
These robots avoid obstacles alter  their routs and keep an office map in their mind.

If that is too complex look into a Roomba.

a lot depends on what objects need moving around.

Can they be picked up from underneath (forklift)
are they delicate? (side grip)
are they magnetic? (electromagnet)
are they smooth? (suction cup/vacuum pump)

is it suitable to try the suction interference grip? (search it)

...lots of options.

How articulate do you want the gripper arm?
