Abstract

We have developed a collaborative robot system to deliver services to people. The Kukanchi system has been used as an intelligent space that comprises sensors, robots, and management servers. Specifically, we expanded and improved Kukanchi’s middleware functionality by adding sensors and robots outside the Kukanchi space. Furthermore, we verified the effectiveness of the system through a guidance service task using the task scheduler in the Kukanchi system. The task scheduler manages the service task by disassembling it and selects and sends requests to robots. In this study, we introduce the system and present the experimental results.
