This paper deals with the problem of embedding safety into an autonomous mobile robot's behaviour. Although robot safety has long been an issue of concern, there has been little work on the contribution that autonomous behaviour can make to a robot's safety management. An approach is hereby explored for explicit safety reasoning within the robot's(More)
Two applications for the use of a laser-scanning device are currently under investigation at Lancaster University. Lancaster University Computerised Intelligent Excavator (LUCIE) is an autonomous excavator which navigates using GPS and compass readings. Work is currently concentrating on navigational safety, for which the rotoscan sensor is employed for(More)
