Abstract [en]

The work presented in this paper is about the development of a collision avoidance systemfor a mobile telepresence robot developed by the company Gira technologies AB.The robot is designed to extend the length of time elderly can stay in their homes beforerequiring full-time staed care. The collision avoidance system is needed to help the userto avoid running in to objects or down a stairway. The design must be capable of beingimplemented at low cost, and should not look overtly "robotic" as this would not resultin an appealing industrial design.

Herein, dierent techniques are presented and analyzed to nd the best suitable solutionfor the robot. In particular a lot of work is done in taking measurements to nd theright characteristics for the sensors according dierent mounting angles, dierent objectsand distances. A solution is chosen and calculations are made to nd the best positionsto place the sensors to get the best results.

A complete solution is presented and implemented in the current system and testedto work as expected.
