Abstract

Touch-interacting, autonomous mobile robots are of extreme interest in different scenarios, which include: i) manoeuvring in crowded environments, ii) slave guidance, and iii) walking aids in rehabilitation and in helping elderly or impaired people. A mobile robot becomes a walking aid when an impaired person can lean on it safety and purposiveiy. Safety, flexibility, responsiveness, adaptation require a kind of intelligence distributed over the three categories above. All these topics are particularly stressed when the robot is asked to perform as a walking aid. In this paper, in particular, we focus mainly on the P&C architecture, on which safety and real-time mainly depend.
