This paper addresses the problem of UGV navigation in various environments and lightning conditions. Previous approaches use a combination of different sensors, or work well, only in scenarios with noticeable road marking or borders. Our robot is used for chemical, nuclear and biological contamination measurement. Thus, to avoid complications with(More)
Remote-controlled robotic systems are being used for analysis of various types of analytes in hostile environment including those called extraterrestrial. The aim of our study was to develop a remote-controlled robotic platform (ORPHEUS-HOPE) for bacterial detection. For the platform ORPHEUS-HOPE a 3D printed flow chip was designed and created with a(More)
Orpheus robotic system projects, including experimental Orpheus-X2 and Orpheus-EB, are presented. Novel member of Orpheus family named Orpheus-AC is presented. Orpheus-AC is a ruggedized teleoperated robot made for chemical and nuclear reconnaissance and was made at our department for VOP-026, Sternberk, s. p. company. It may be operated wireless or by(More)

ARGOS (advanced robotic graphical operation system) for teleoperation of various mobile robots through sensory supported visual telepresence is presented. Two robots -Orpheus and Hermes - made on Department of Control and Instrumentation (DCI) are described as examples of systems with different features and capabilities that may be controlled through ARGOS.(More)
Orpheus mobile robot is a teleoperated device primarily designed for remote exploration of hazardous places and rescue missions. The robot is able to operate both indoors and outdoors, is made to be durable and reliable. The device is controlled through advanced user interface with joystick and head mounted display with inertial head movement sensor. To(More)
This paper describes a multispectral data fusion system for real-time telepresence and digital mapping applicable in reconnaissance robotics. The system was developed by our team for CASSANDRA, a robotic group comprising several robots with different features controllable from a single operator station. Special emphasis is put on cooperative mapping and(More)
The aim of this paper is to describe the fusion of data acquired from a CCD camera and a thermal imager. The fusion is realized by means of spatial data from a TOF camera to ensure “natural” representation of a robot's environment; thus, the thermal and color-related data are comprised in one stereo image presented to a binocular, head-mounted(More)
This paper deals with the calibration of scanner Velodyne HDL-64E that is used in field robotic applications. The aim of calibration is to improve the performance in advanced mapping algorithms such as robot evidence grids or octree. The proposed novel calibration method is founded on conditional adjustment for correlated measurements and using close range(More)
