Autonomous Operations

Autonomous Navigation

In the autonomous navigation mode, the mobile robot is automatically following a given predefined path. This path can be determined by an operator, directing the robot to autonomously drive toward a given target, or in the form of a preplanned route, which can be communicated to the mobile robot via a 4G or 5G cellular network. When the mobile robot operates in autonomous mode, it uses its onboard sensors, to provide information on the position and speed of each wheel to precisely calculate the mobile robot’s movement (odometry).

If the robot is equipped with an onboard GNSS receiver and an RTK correction signal, the information can be fused with the odometry of the mobile robot to obtain centimeter precise navigation.

Commandeer on the Fly

Our self-developed mobile app allows for creating a path for the robot to follow. The path is described as a sequence of waypoints, defined in a global coordinate system similar to what you find in Google Maps. With our app, you can set and change the path on the go with a smartphone or tablet. The app is available for both Android and iOS.

When driving the robots navigate based on input from three sources:

  • The robots own speed and orientation (Odometry)
  • Input from position satellites (GNSS)
  • Visual recognition of features from cameras (VSLAM)
