This article describes the software architecture of an autonomous, interactive tour-guide robot. It presents a modular, distributed software architecture, which integrates localization, mapping, collision avoidance, planning, and various modules concerned with user interaction. The approach does not require any modifications to the environment. To cope with the various challenges in dynamic and ill-structured environments, the software relies on probabilistic computation, on-line learning, any… CONTINUE READING
