This medium-sized mobile platform is ideal for use in service robotics, e.g. for developing butler robots or as Alexa’s extended arm. Two driven wheels at the front are designed for approaching tables or kitchenettes, at the back the platform has two support wheels. The actual platform is very compact, but a superstructure can be used to integrate a robot arm, telepresence unit or similar at table height. The platform offers enough space to integrate your own extensions.
Overall, the platform consists of the following subsystems:
- Mechanical base with differential drive
- 6-axis robot arm
- Electric gripper
- Control electronics with battery
- 2 laser scanner Slamtec RPLidar A2M8
- Control computer with Windows based CPRog software
The control is done internally on an intel NUC Core i5 with installed Windows 10 Pro. The CPRog software with the NavPak extension controls both the mobile platform and a mounted robot arm. The functions of the NavPak allow the creation of maps and localization based on the laser scanner data. Power is supplied by a 24V/10Ah battery, which is sufficient for 3 – 5 hours of operation, depending on usage.
The robot platform is designed for R&D use, it does not have safety laser scanners. It cannot be used in industrial applications.
