Summary

The design and realization of dependable robots for human environments, is a grand challenge the people working in robotic world have to meet. Dependability is the property that integrates attributes such as safety, security, survivability, maintainability, reliability and availability. And this is not a feature that can be added after the functional design. This work presents a tool based on principles that lead to an improved dependability of intelligent robots. This tool was developed with the main objective of aiding in the design of the vision computer system of a mobile robot performing activities related to vigilance and security control.
