A REFERENCE ARCHITECTURE FOR MANAGING VARIABILITY AMONG TELEOPERATED SERVICE ROBOTS

Francisco Ortiz, Juan Ángel Pastor, Diego Alonso, Fernando Losilla, Esther de Jódar

Abstract

Teleoperated robots are used to perform hazardous tasks that human operators cannot carry out. The purpose of this paper is to present a new architecture (ACROSET) for the development of these systems that takes into account the current advances in robotic architectures while adopting the component-oriented approach. ACROSET provides a common framework for developing this kind of robotized systems and for integrating intelligent components. The architecture is currently being used, tested and improved in the development of a family of robots, teleoperated cranes and vehicles which perform environmentally friendly cleaning of ship-hull surfaces (the EFTCoR project).
