I am designing a cart to transport and store some sensitive equipment. We want to mistake proof the ESD connection by making it connect automatically when the cart is in its correct location. I had the idea to use metal wheels and store the cart on a metal pad, but that would tear up the floor over time. I've been trying to figure out some sort of docking mechanism that would complete the connection by pushing the cart into it, possible with the two halves connecting to a support leg on the cart and the wall. 

Does anyone have any experience or ideas with this kind of project? Any help is appreciated. Thanks!

I would just have the cart drag a conductive member.  Could be a metalized cloth, spring, chain, wire rope, etc.
