Abstract

In this paper different powerful extensions and improvements of the control architecture of an autonomous robot are presented. They are used to increase the reliability at robot assembly and to reach a sufficient behavior. The decision to use autonomous assembly robots in an industrial manufacturing setting depends mainly on the reliability of such a system and the extension of its manipulation capabilities. Three years ago the Karlsruhe Autonomous Mobile Robot KAMRO was presented as a robot system that is able to take on, and to execute, autonomously assembly tasks. Although the robot was able to work without human intervention within a limited scope, the reliability of the system was unfortunately not adequate for large scale applications. This paper describes how the reliability has been improved and which experiments were performed to evaluate the concept.
