Mobile robots

Mobile robotics can be a real game changer in many projects. Mobile robots are powerful tools, which autonomy can take over from humans strenuous or dangerous tasks.

What is an autonomous mobile robot?

An autonomous mobile robot is a robot that can move around in an open or closed space. It does not remain stationary in one position. The autonomous mobile robot can map its environment and navigate on its own, without being controlled by an operator.

Autonomous mobile robots do not need any external relays to operate (such as beacons). Instead, they use SLAM (Simultaneous Localization And Mapping) technology, which enables them to build a map of their environment in real time, and do some self-localization. If needed, autonomous mobile robots can also be remotely operated.

Usually, an autonomous mobile robot is made up of:

  • A chassis (with motors and controller)
  • An embedded computer
  • A battery
  • Sensors (at least a LiDAR)
  • Actuators

The sensors and actuators will change depending on the tasks the robot has to perform.

Types of sensors:

  • Thermal sensor
  • Panoramic camera
  • Gas sensor
  • Motion sensor
  • Microphone
  • Etc

Type of actuators:

  • Robotic arm
  • Screen
  • Speakers
  • Drone
  • Etc

Mobile robots: missions and applications

In which situations can mobile robotics be a real advantage? We won't list the many tasks a robot can take over from humans, there are too many. We will list the one we are familiar with at Génération Robots.

Missions where a robot can be essential, or mandatory:

How to choose the right mobile robot for your project?

The environment and the terrain are both major considerations, as they cannot be easily changed.

Depending on the environment and the terrain on which the robot will drive, as well as its missions, the locomotion will be different:

  • Mecanum wheels ➡ allows lateral movements, suitable for warehouses and indoor navigation (Clearpath Robotics' Dingo robot type)
  • All-terrain wheels ➡ for outdoor navigation, suitable for exploration missions, agriculture, etc (RR100 robot type from Generation Robots)
  • Tracked ➡ outdoor navigation, on uneven terrain (potholes, small ditches, rocks, steps, etc) (Bunker Pro robot type)
  • 4 legs ➡ allows robots to move on stairs or rocks (Spot robot type)

You will also need to consider the following features:

  • The payload (does the robot need to carry heavy equipment?)
  • Autonomy (an important factor in surveillance and security missions)
  • Agility (speed and turning radius)
  • The budget allocated to the project

Other factors, such as the possibility to quickly add extra addons, can also be important. Agilex mobile robots are equipped with rails that allow for quick customization.

Finally, ROS/ROS 2 compatibility is often a major factor in the choice of a mobile base, especially for research and R&D centers. All our mobile robots are ROS compatible.
