The Waseda University researchers are trying to enable robots to navigate household living spaces by developing a seamless indoor/outdoor positioning solution with the use of GPS technology with pseudolites. This team developed a robotic component as well as design theories of environment space, construction, and social systems for human-robot symbiosis. They have considered the physical function of the robots for the human-robot symbiosis to include the safety control and human-robot contact identification. These robots are then placed with sensors so as to have an artificial navigation. The indoor positioning of these robots is through a multi-channel pseudolite and PC-based software for pseudolite data processing.
