Mobile robots can navigate and travel in their environment. Autonomous mobile robots have been used by the military, hospitals and warehouses for some years.


This Demonstration shows a conceptual model of a mobile robot with an autonomous guided vehicle (AGV) for navigating within an indoor environment. A six-degrees-of-freedom manipulator is integrated on top of a vehicle, which increases the working ability of the robot.
