Abstract

It can be exhausting, both physically and emotionally, to assist physically handicapped persons. Therefore, an assistive mobile system called AMOS (Assistive MObile robot System) has been developed to help alleviate this burden. The purpose of AMOS is to pick up and transport daily use objects, placing them in a designated indoor location semi-autonomously. AMOS consists of a self-contained mobile robot body, a user interface with a touch-panel and a computer network (Ethernet LAN, Internet). The user interacts with the mobile robot through a Web browser connected to a computer network, allowing for communication anytime, from anywhere and by anyone. This mode provides a simple way for communicating with and determining the status of the robot. Experiments were performed to verify the successful operation of AMOS. Although the system performed as designed, it would prove useful to the extend service area of the robot through communication mechanisms and the user interface.
