Environment infrastructure and multi-sensor integration for autonomous service robotics

  title={Environment infrastructure and multi-sensor integration for autonomous service robotics},
  author={V. I. Rybak},
This paper presents an approach to enable autonomous service robots activities based on creation of an infrastructure parallel to the infrastructure of environment for daily human life and on cooperation of robot sensors. A mobile robot equipped with a manipulator is regarded as a service robot. A specific problem of control by the manipulator movement is concerned with changeable position of its base with regard to the position of the environment objects. The infrastructure contains both… 
Implementation of a semi-automatic robotic system for alignment in the Ronchi test
The control system design of a rail system with two degrees of freedom is presented, which allows semiautomatic alignment of the Ronchi tester with the surface in production, which more closely resembles the experimental ronchigram.
Robotic system of two degrees of freedom for the evaluation of concave reflective surfaces using the Ronchi test
The design, construction and characterization of a robotic system programmed to perform the Ronchi test is presented, which includes the design and the control of a rail system of two degrees of freedom, which allow the semi-automatic alignment of theRonchi tester and the surface under test.


Plenary lecture 2: safety, uncertainty, and real-time problems in developing autonomous robots
