Failure data on mobile robots is critical for three reasons: to support the theory of autonomous fault detection, identification, and recovery necessary for success in new domains; provide design and manufacturing feedback to the robotics community; and permit project managers to accurately create development schedules. The failures considered in this paper occurred over a period of 2 years, in a variety of environments. Failure type and frequency data were collected from thirteen robots… CONTINUE READING
