Abstract

A concept for an autonomous and self-reliant mobile robot is proposed and a prototype model is completed. The model can move about by its own decisions in an environment with corridors, stairs, doors and randomly located obstacles. It is equiped with a TV camera with a wide visual field angle for autonomous guidance. The arm is of the force-feedback multi-articulated type with 6 degrees of freedom. Carbon-fiber reinforced plastics is used for the mobile unit and the arm. Because of its light-weight and high-speed guidance, the robot is able to drive at 2 km/h.
