Dude is a little robot for with two wheels (diameter 7cm and 14cm of wheelbase) and weight about 2 kg. It is equipped by a RGBD sensor, a NVIDIA Jetson TK1 board and the unav motor control board. This robot interact and perceives of obstacles around it. it can send real time all pictures from the environment that surrounds it. The applications for "Dude" are wandering and interaction with humans in unknown environments, you study of intelligent control techniques for human-computer interaction, the children's entertainment, etc etc.
With ROS, Dude can wandering autonomously and with a web remote control you can read all telemetry information and diagnostic the heat of the robot. The sensors of the robot are RGBD camera and encoder for the wheels.
Simultaneous Localization And Mapping (SLAM) is used for dude robot to localize and mapping an unknown area. This process consists of a number of steps, filtering the information from different sensors, estimate the position with cameras, reobserving the environment robot moves around and updating where the robot thinks it is based on these features.
With the SLAM and an high level control dude can interact with the environment. A graphic interface for PC or an web remote control system. You can set a goal inside a map, built in real time, and you can see the robot build a path and following it.
