The mobile robot consists of a mobile base and an on board computer, and is equipped with a wide variety of sensors such as front sonar ring, rear sonar ring, bump ring, and surveillance/custom vision system. It has accessories such as a gripper, a joystick and a software plug-in. It has C/C++ compatible software libraries with built-in obstacle avoidance, sensor fusion, extensive mapping, and path planning behaviors and other navigational behaviors and tasks. The Ethernet makes it also the easiest platform robot in its class to interface with other devices, which means this open platform robot can be used to perform tasks such as real-time control of a very complicated robotics system through the application of Ethernet cards.
