In this paper we give a general overview of the development process carried out in the DESIRE project. This process can be roughly split up into four main phases, from specification in the beginning over two integration phases up to optimisation in the end.With a large variety of technologies and expertises involved, the development of a complex service robot system such as the DESIRE technology platform proved to reveal many challenges on technical as well as organisational level. Several of…
