Abstract:

Autonomous mobile robots need reliable navigation capabilities in order to navigate in an automated unattended operation. This paper reports on the first result of a research program that uses a developed MES - Modular Electronic System for controlling mobile robots. The approach explicitly maintains the exploration of unknown environment including the communication with the mapping algorithm. A novel feature of our approach is its modular integration of electronics with the ability to multitask, which can be adapted for particular applications. We demonstrate the robustness of this approach in controlling an actual indoor mobile robot navigating the University of Applied Sciences Upper Austria - Campus Wels.
