"A Highly Adaptable Telepresence Robot for Multiple Uses"



PeopleBot Summary

The PeopleBot telepresence robot is built on a P3-DX base. The extension to that base allows for chest-height interaction with the robot. Adept Mobile Robots, the manufacturer of the PeopleBot, offers an optional touchscreen which is connected to the in-built computer for human to robot interaction. Since this robot can be used for research and development, the touch screen can be programmed with user specific software. Various accessories can be purchased for this robot which allows the user to customize the robot to suit their particular needs.

Using special sensors, the robot is able to detect obstructions as well as detect flat surfaces such as a table top. With the use of optional grippers, the PeopleBot is able to pick up and place objects on a table. Additional accessories include laser-range finders, mono and stereo vision cameras, gyroscopes and joysticks. Due to the versatile design of the robot, almost any accessory can be added and programmed into the operations.

The PeopleBot robot is able to be controlled by either directional keys or a joystick through included software. This software is also able to plan paths including gradient navigation and can display a map of its sonar readings. This robot was primarily produced for research and development. It provides the tools and accessories to allow the user to setup testing scenarios, including robot vision capabilities. The robot software allows the user to run C/C++ programs making its use very customizable.

An audio and speech package can be purchased, allowing the Peoplebot robot to speak, play, and record sounds through its speakers and microphones. The Peoplebot also features the flexibility of using cameras or manipulator arms instead of the touch-screen.
