Abstract

This paper presents a project that is developing a mobile service robot to assist users in biological and pharmaceutical laboratories by executing routine jobs such as filling and transporting microplates. A preliminary overview of the design of the mobile platform with a robotic arm is provided. Moreover, the approaches to localization and intuitive multimodal human-machine interaction using speech and touchpad input are described. One focus of the project is aspects of safety since the robot and humans will share a common environment.
