One approach of how to pass through a doorway by a mobile robot is discussed. In this task-oriented approach, proposed task is to realize a total behavior with opening a door and passing through a doorway by a mobile robot equipped with a manipulator. In this paper, we describe a design of such behavior by a robot, and show a simulation of robot motion series for this task. The key issue for realizing such behavior is cooperation between robot's function sub-systems, such as the locomotion control system, the manipulator control system and the sensor systems.
