Activity: Talk or presentationOral presentation


For autonomous mobile robots it is important to have the capability to plan and reach a defi ned goal. In this article, we present a novel mobile robot for urban search and rescue based to achieve highly locomotion capabilities. The preliminary aim is to build rescue robots which could be able to drive in an unstructured environment and search for victims. It is critical in many mobile robotics applications to characterise the presence and position of objects around the robot. This is the case whether the mobile robot is under autonomous or teleoperative control. To autonomously navigate on rough terrain is a challenging problem for mobile robots, requiring the ability to decide which parts of the environment can be traversed or have to be bypassed. A new mechanism is developed to drive sideways which could be helpful especially in diffi cult curved staircase or uneven terrain.
