Autonomous mobile robots have been around for many years and are actively being employed in a variety of tasks today. However, it is not uncommon for a robot developer to focus on how “cool” the robot is, rather than a robot’s function and reliability. As with any product, a customer might appreciate a robot’s “coolness” for a short time, but they may not be willing to pay for the robot if it has no practical value.
This presentation will cover some of the more practical uses of robots and how they are currently being used in real world application. Our main objective is to provide answers to the question of “What does it do?” by covering the six most common functions that practical robots are designed to perform, along with the 3D’s (Dirty, Dull and Dangerous).
Sumo style robots have become a popular venue for a variety of competitions. One will be used to demonstrate some of the six common functions.
The presentation is sponsored by IEEE New Hampshire Section Joint Computer Society and Robotics and Automation Society Seminar Series.
