The Intelligent Mobile Robot KAMRO

Intelligent Mobile Robot KAMROHigher intelligence and greater autonomy of more advanced robot systems increase the requirements for the design of a flexible interface to control the system on different levels of abstraction. In the Kamro (Karlsruhe Autonomous Mobile Robot) project, for example, an autonomous mobile robot (Fig. 1) for assembly tasks is being developed which also has the capability of recovering from error situations Lath and Remold (1994).

Advanced robot systems steadily gain higher intelligence and greater autonomy

kobie_rabie_etri_1As advanced robot systems steadily gain higher intelligence and greater autonomy, the requirements for the design of flexible interfaces to control these systems will increase. This is for instance the case, according to Rembold et al. [1993], for the future use of intelligent robots in manufacturing or as service robots for different applications. Continue reading
