A Modular and Scalable Electronic System for Mobile and Autonomous Robots
M. Zauner, R. Edlinger - A Modular and Scalable Electronic System for Mobile and Autonomous Robots in Lecture Notes in Communications in Computer and Information Science (CCIS) - Springer Vieweg, 2010, pp. 9
Robotics is a scientific discipline which includes the operation
and development of robots and other fields of computer science, as
well as electrical and mechanical engineering and high-performance modular
control systems. This paper reports the first results of a research
project that uses a previously developed MES - Modular Electronic System
for autonomous mobile robots and for developing robots to use the
MES in other scientific applications. This approach offers the ability to
build a scalable and flexible control system with only a few modules. 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 indoor mobile robot for the EUROBOT 2009 and 2010.
