Abstract

In this paper, a novel mobile platform for assistive robotics tasks is presented. The machine is designed for working in a home environment, un-structured and possibly occupied by people. To work in this space, the platform must be able to get rid of all the consequent difficulties: to overpass small objects as steps and carpets, to operate with an as-high-as- possible dynamics, to avoid moving obstacles, and to navigate autonomously to track persons for person monitoring purposes. The proposed platform is designed to have an omni-directional mobility that improves the manoeuvrability with respect to state-of-the-art differential drive robots. It also will have a non-axisymmetric shape to easily navigate narrow spaces, and real-time edge computing algorithms for navigation. This work shows the design paradigm adopted for the realization of a novel mobile robot, named Paquitop. For a robust output, the design process used a modular approach which disjointed the several sub-systems which compose the machine. After a brief analysis of the expected features, a set of basic requirements are drawn to guide the functional and executive design. The overall architecture of the platform is presented, together with some details on the mechanical and electrical systems.
