Abstract [en]

The aim of this work is to introduce autonomous robots for collecting waste bins in an officeenvironment. Since the environment will contain humans, therefore, the robot-human interactionis essential so that neither the robot nor humans come in harm’s way. To prevent this, the robotneeds to be able to communicate with the humans, and it has to operate in a safe way in the officeenvironment. To facilitate this there is a need to investigate the state-of-the-art in various fieldssuch as: mapping, path planning and, machine-human interaction. The result is a robot that isable to map an indoor environment and use the map to its advantages for producing a suitable pathfrom any given position to any desired location. While traversing the path, sensor data is gatheredfor obstacle detection and avoidance in order to handle dynamic environments.
