LiSA: A Robot Assistant for Life Sciences
This paper presents a mobile service robot that assists users in biological and pharmaceutical laboratories by carrying out routine jobs such as filling and transportation of microplates. Relevant requirements are outlined and an overview of the design of the mobile platform with a robotic arm is provided. Moreover, the approaches to object recognition and intuitive multimodal human-machine interaction using speech and touchpad input are described. The main focus of the project is aspects of safety since the robot and humans share a common environment and actually cooperate. Hence, a safety concept has been devised, which consists of various sensor systems such as laser scanners, thermographic components and artificial skin. Key words: service robotics, mobile robot, object recognition, humanmachine interaction 1 Motivation Much progress has been made in the field of service robotics in recent years. Yet, autonomous robots have still not entered everyday life because the scenarios p...
