Robotic OS Goal: Develop a platform open to 3 rd party developers that will become the standard OS for the mobile robotics industry Closest Existing Example –Hardware –Software Challenges Direction Products Schedule
Example – Cye Robot Henry Thorne
Cye - continued Sparse sensors on base –Wheels –Sound Radio communications with a PC Optional Camera, trailer, cordless vacuum.
Challenges Met –Localization –Skills (User Programmed and built-in) Recharging, but no stair climbing Unmet –API for localization –API for skills –Vision –Manipulation –Reasoning (Planning and Scheduling)
Direction Goal: Meet most unmet challenges with an Alpha release due Christmas day, 2001 (ignore manipulation for now…) Robotic OS consists of: –Localization –Skills –Applications AI (for robotics) consists of: –Vision –Reasoning
Robotic OS Architecture
Products Modules –Model for Localization –Model for Skills –Simulator Applications –Scripter –Localizer –Path Planner –Activity Planner –Vision System APIs –Localization to Skills –Localization to Apps –Skills to Apps –Skills to Effectors –Localization to Sensors –Path Planner to Apps –Activity Planner to Apps –Vision System to Apps
