Autonomous transport vehicles are an optimal solution for the movement of people in defined environments. Moreover, it is a focused area of research, the basis for the development of autonomous navigation product applications.
Robotnik has carried out the design, manufacture and programming an autonomous robot to transport people in urban environments. The mechanical characteristics of the robot are as follows:
Vehicle control is via a PC. It is responsible of controlling autonomous robot motion (traction, steering and braking). The vehicle allows automatic or manual driving, as desired by the user. The robot works with architecture ROS (www.ros.org).
