Intelligent Mobile Robotics System
Research on a six legged mobile robotics which is currently used in the research labs. The robot can be equipped with sonar sensors, vision system and communication system. In mobile robot research, the human user is often located at a remote site. The challenge here is for the robot to understand what the user is trying to communicate, particularly to understand the details of multiple sequential tasks. Similarly, the robot should be able to communicate to the user any information regarding the environment, the state of the robot and the task that might have some influence on what the user wants the robot to do. In this research, we are exploring methods for facilitating communication of information about location and navigation, then develop intelligent control algorithms that enables to robot to perform the tasks in hand.
