Autonomous Electric Vacuum Robot

Though it may seem technically correct, the vacuum robot might work incorrect logically. Users may only want the robot to clean a section of the room because some certain reason that may cause harm to the robot itself but the robot goes on cleaning the surfaces of it does not suppose to do. Thus, this creates a conflict for the user to control to where the robot suppose to roam. Other similar incident can happen like when the robot meets a ledge. If there are no proper sensors to detect the ledge, the robot might fall off. Therefore, an invisible barrier can be used to limit the movement of the vacuum robot to avoid crossing restricted areas and ledge sensors are integrated to detect ledges and avoid fall.

Design of Autonomous Cleaning Robot

Design of Autonomous Cleaning Robot

Apart from domestic homes, there is tremendous potential to implement autonomous cleaning robots to places such as schools, auditorium, shopping malls, etc. This thesis aims at creating a proof of concept of an autonomous cleaning robot for schools. In gen- eral, the most common cleaning tasks to be addressed in a school are floor cleaning and board cleaning. Hence, the main application of this autonomous cleaning robot is floor cleaning and board cleaning. Usually, the floor cleaning process is accomplished in two steps. First is the dry cleaning wherein the dust is cleared using a vacuum cleaner. It is then followed by wetting cleaning using a wet mop. This thesis focuses on developing a system for dry cleaning through vacuum cleaning. Here the robot must be able to move freely within its working environment while at the same time execute effective vacuum cleaning of the area. Generally, the school floor contains a combination of dust, bits of paper, gravel and small pebbles and the cleaning area is huge. Therefore, a robust vacuum cleaning system must be designed such that it has a good dust-pickup ability to suck the above-mentioned debris. Along with this, the system must have longer running cycles to clean the maximum area in one charging cycle. The selection of path planning algorithms and sensor array plays a vital role in providing complete coverage of the area and thereby effects the efficiency and safety of autonomous vacuum cleaning.

Development of Autonomous Sweeper Robot for Badminton Court

This project is based on basic vacuum cleaning and robot movement. Those concerned with the design of an autonomous sweeper robot for a badminton court by using Arduino mega as its brain. It constitutes a smooth, less noisy and user friendly [1]. This idea have been developed an autonomous sweeper robot for badminton court which is designed to clean a badminton court by using a basic principal of vacuum, the Arduino system as an operating system, a line following concept and basic linear motion as an arm for cleaning purposes [2]. Basically, this autonomous sweeper robot moving principle based on the line guided at badminton court. This project also used a motor driver to drive a motor vacuum and arm robot. By using Arduino microprocessor works as a brain to control all mobilization and process of the robot. DC motor is used to propel the robot vacuum and the vacuum. However, DC motor spins too fast and has little torque to drive the loads. Thus, gear reduction is required to slow down the rotational speed and increase the torque of the motors. The robot senses the obstacles through the infrared sensor. These sensors are installed at the arm of the robot.

Portable Autonomous Window Cleaning Robot

Portable Autonomous Window Cleaning Robot

tools such as applicator and squeegee; the payload for tool handling, sensory feedback requirements; force and compliance control; and finally the cost of the overall system had to be feasible [8]. Another work highlights the development of the window cleaning robot for cleaning a single large windowpane such as a show window [9]. It requires the following demands to apply the window cleaning robot for the practical use: 1) Clean the corner of a window because fouling is left there often. 2) Sweep the windowpane continuously to prevent making striped patterns on a windowpane. The other robot named Windro adheres to the surface of window glass by means of four permanent magnet pairs between an inner unit and an outer unit rather than using vacuum suckers for the energy efficiency and safety [10]. An inner unit and an outer unit are in charge of navigation and cleaning, respectively. A novel tethered window cleaning robot named a “SkyScraper-I” was also designed [11]. The SkyScraper-I has the functions to approach all the windows located on one side of a building by controlling the lengths of a pair of suspending tethers from the top of the building and to clean the whole surface of the windows. The robot consists of the vertically suspended sliding rod, a pair of clamping arms with clamping suction rollers on both ends, and a squeegee sliding mechanism to wipe the window.

Autonomous Floor Cleaning Robot with Infrared and Ultrasonic

Cleaning robot is a type of mechanical and electrical product for sweeping and dusting. It is superior to an ordinary vacuum because it is more convenient to use and it can save more time when it works. The whole cleaning process does not need a person to control and it reduces the burden on the operation. The noise is smaller than the general vacuum cleaner when it is working. It can purify the air; adsorb harmful substances in the air with activated carbon in it. Its structure is compact, balance and lightweight, but it can clean up some special space. In short, cleaning robot is combined with robotics technology and dust sweeping project and it is intelligent and convenient. So it is an environmentally friendly, healthy, intelligent service robot with a good prospect and a wide range of market demand [1, 2].

Development An Intelligent Controller Of An Autonomous Mobile Robot

When dealing with mobile robots or more specifically in unicycle mobile robots, the ideal rolling condition of the robot is needed to be considered. It is meant that the wheel of the robot is rolled without any slipping occurs and the sideways component of wheel velocity assumed to be set to zero so that the sideways slip could be eliminated [1], [10], [12], [13], [14], [16], [17], [18], [19]. Ideal rolling conditions is imposed to the nonholonomic constraints on the wheel and consequently on the vehicle motion [7], [12], [13], [14], [16], [17], [19]. A nonholonomic system can be said that a system in which a return to the original internal configuration does not guarantee return to the original system position.

Autonomous navigation framework for a car-like robot

Autonomous navigation framework for a car-like robot

Then, for each planning query, a partial graph is built on-line to try to find a path connecting the current and goal configurations. When the solution path in the graph is found, the actual trajectory is built by appending the feasible motions associated to each of the edges of the path. The number of primitives used for the control set directly affects the computational complex- ity of the graph search algorithm, so there exist a trade-off between keeping the computational complexity low while exploiting the maneuverability of the robot as much as possible. Each motion primitive is assigned a cost that will be taken into account when searching for the best path.

A Study on Connected and Autonomous Electric Vehicles

A Study on Connected and Autonomous Electric Vehicles

The Connected and Autonomous Electric Vehicles will be an important part of the coming automobile revolution which is driven by the need for sustainable, eco-friendly and smart mobility. The CAEVs have the great potential to operate with even higher vehicle efficiency, if they are charged using the electricity generated from renewable energy sources and that will significantly reduce emissions as well as dependency on fossil fuels as well. CAEVs combine the abilities of connectivity, automation and e- mobility and are capable of sensing its environment and navigating with little or no human input. The potential impact of CAEV technology is vast and it is being hailed by many as the fourth industrial revolution. While the automotive sector stands to be radically altered, it is not alone. The possible applications of this technology straddle a variety of different sectors and will change not only the way people travel but the way that we live our lives. While disruption on such a broad scale presents a wide range of opportunities, the speed at which this technology is developing, combined with the evolving regulatory landscape poses a number of novel and challenging issues. Efficient addressing of the associated challenges would enable easy transition to CAEVs which on the other hand is expected to improve road safety, optimize traffic flow, reduce fuel consumption, and minimize environmental pollution.

CERES An Autonomous and Versatile Agriculture Robot

CERES An Autonomous and Versatile Agriculture Robot

An initial outcome of this study indicates that most of these systems that which work autonomously are more flexible than traditional systems. The benefits of reduction in labor costs and restrictions on the number of daily working hours significantly improved. Thus it has made possible to automate the most significant working routines. However some have failed due to the requirement of accuracy of specific tasks. In addition, at this stage of development, the initial investment are still relatively high but it seems possible to design economic viable robotic systems for grass cutting, crop scouting and autonomous weeding. Findings show that there is a significant potential for applying these systems if it’s possible to impose adequate control and safety regulations systems at reasonable costs. Moreover, a comparison between different European countries indicates that labor costs, cost rotation and farm structure may have a tremendous impact on the potential use of these systems.

Participating in Autonomous Robot Competitions: Experiences from a Robot Soccer Team

Participating in Autonomous Robot Competitions: Experiences from a Robot Soccer Team

To overcome the beforementioned difficulties there is the need to increase the ratio between scientific results and the ef- fort in terms of manpower and money spent. One way could be to make achievements better visible to the scientific world outside of robot soccer. E.g. most websites of robots soccer teams show nice pictures and videos about their participation but only a few websites describe the individual research goals of the teams and the scientific achievements. Neither the sci- entific world nor the general public have the chance to get some ideas of what is the level of development in each league. Even for robot soccer participants the further development in other leagues remain vague. Furthermore, the results from the technical challenges are not available online, even some tour- nament results are missing. Here, a better presentation would already help a lot. It would also be a good idea to present the best scientific improvements of the present year in a special issue of a journal that has a better visibility than the RoboCup symposium. Moreover, it would foster scientific work of the RoboCup teams. For comparison, the journal of field robotics has reserved three issues for the teams which reached the fi- nals of the DARPA urban challenge.

Compressed Sensing Environmental Mapping by an Autonomous Robot

We have demonstrated a simple yet useful prototype autonomous robot for mapping environment variables. It can be applied to existing robot platforms that are equipped with wireless communication and tracking systems. The required computing power of the robot is only onboard addition and a storage big enough to hold one data point. The data collection strategy based on compressed sensing enables minimal data communication. It is further improved by adopting adaptive path planning using already collected data. The image reconstruction algorithm minimizes the data fitting error plus the ` 1 norm of the gradient of the image,
