Walking-robot technology has already achieved an important stage of development, as demonstrated in a few real applications. However, walking robots still need further improvement if they are to compete with traditional vehicles. A potential improvement could be made through optimization at...
A team of small, low-cost robots instead of a single large, complex robot is useful in operations such as search and rescue, urban exploration etc. However, performance of such a team is limited due to restricted mobility of the team members. We propose solutions based on physical cooperation...
This paper describes the mechanical devices conforming a novel wheelchair prototype capable of climbing staircases. The key feature of the mechanical design is the use of two decoupled mechanisms in each axle, one to negotiate steps, and the other to position the axle with respect to the chair...
This paper presents a novel approach to the vision based grid map building and localization problem that works in a complex indoor environment with a single forward viewing camera. Most existing visual SLAM has been limited to the feature-based method and only a few researchers have proposed...
This paper presents a new proposal for positioning and guiding mobile robots in indoor environments. The proposal is based on the information provided by static cameras located in the movement environment. This proposal falls within the scope of what are known as intelligent environments; in...
