Abstract

An escalator riding robot with increased mobile area has been developed. Using data from a laser range finder and a tactile sensor, the algorithm controls the timing of riding an escalator. The control method was verified by an experiment in which the robot successfully rode on an upward moving escalator. Next, the algorithm will be adapted for riding on a downward moving escalator, enabling free movement of patrol or tour services between upper and lower floors.
