Abstract

This paper describes the concept of the multi sensor system of the autonomous mobile robot KAMRO developed at the Institute for Real-Time Computer Control Systems and Robotics, University of Karlsruhe. It explains the architecture of the supervision module for the interpretation of the multi sensor data with the help of a knowledge based system. The results of the interpretation of the sensor data are input into the planing process. Thereby, it is possible to respond to the working conditions of the robot.
