eGUIDE

The link between mobile devices and robotics became clear when it was understood to be responsible not only for the improvement of man's way of life, but also for his interaction with society. This notion is accepted without the concept of a "robot being", but alternatively with the demand for robotic environments, adaptable to each and every individual. In this way, these devices appear as a simple motivation for this interaction.

To illustrate this concept, the lab environment was used for an autonomous robot capable of remote control, which presents the various tools in the room, each one according to our future plans.

Architecture

the architecture
The Architecture

Faça um demonstrativo com excelentes gráficos. O PowerPoint facilita a produção dos recursos visuais que costumam exigir vários aplicativos. Aplique facilmente sombras suaves, reflexos, brilhos, bisels, 3D e muito mais!

  • Modularized
  • Upgradeable
  • Changeable
  • Extensible
motion control
Motion Control

The control of the motors is directly done by the N800, via the Nxt Prompt. It means, that the N800 is the brain of the Robot and all the algorithms are implemented on it.

linux kernel
Linux Kernel

The Linux Kernel is the lowest level Operational System’s Interface Layer with the hardware and responsible to manage the computational Resources of the System.

Open source!!

...

camera
Camera

As we are using a Linux device , we have plenty access to the camera device, to the raw data, and the manipulation, and creation of applications that require image processing are easier.

communication layer
Communication Layer

The communication layer provides serial and USB, for internal connections, and bluetooth or wireless, for external devices. The bluetooth can be used like a wireless serial, intermediated by the Rfcomm protocol.

interface remote control
Interface/Remote Control

PyGTK applications are truly multiplatform and they're able to run, unmodified, on Linux, Windows, MacOS X and other platforms.

PyGTK is free software, so you can use, modify, distribute and study it with very few restrictions (LGPL license).”

application data analysis
Application/Data Analysis
  • Easy access to any of the data that comes from the Robot.
  • Bidirectional communication / analysis
movement detection
Movement Detection

If any motion is detected the movie block assumes the control of the current state of the platform.

slide16
Call

The Linux Kernel should require the application, according to the security configuration, and start calling any person/thing that is necessary.

movie
Movie

The movie server initializes, the user( security company, owner) is contacted, and can access the movie server to analyze the image itself. On the robot side, it tries to accomplish the better position for filming.

Business Potential

Home Robots:

      Security

      Entertainment

     Approximate People

    Elderly people Care

    Interaction between the Robot and people with blind, handicapped  people to ease their lives

Entertainment Robots:

Interaction with people's devices on museums robot guides, airports, train stations, etc.

    Nokia promotion on electronics meetings

    Multimedia Content

All the concepts of Robotics are planned to be integrated, such as Mobile Robots, Domotics, etc. 

slide22

Future Work

We have already integrated this solution to an i-cybie toy, but we plan to integrate with more Robots(as Robots , as our really limited budget can get), as our architecture is "robot-independent".

Currently working for sooner releases:

     Motion Detection by the device's camera(some beta problems, so not on the solution for the competition)

     Sensor Integration with the Device

     Audio streaming , captured by the Robot

Currently Working for future Releases: 

      More Autonomous features

       Voice Recognition

       Face Recognition

      Integration with more sensors, such as Smoke Sensor, etc.

      Integration with more devices.

eGUIDE is just the beginning of a bright future , a little story. However, the fusion between mobile devices and robots could, in other cases,  promenade along a museum, describing objects and their history, alluring people to it. We can experience a delightful past quest with the best that the future has to offer: boundless informations. In this context, we could have for instance a wide multimedia to be presented according to each convenience.
