A mobile robot architecture dedicated to asynchronous events management N. Pons, S. Delaplace & J.

This architecture is specifically designed to support manoeuvering requirements such as planning control and contacts management with the environment. After a presentation of the navigation problematic in a constrained environment for a non-holonomic robot, we describe our approach and the soft-and-hardware levels consequences deriving from it. Fundamentally we deal with the elaboration of a very flexible and open architecture, which combines functional and behavioral aspects to cope with asynchronous events and to give to the robot reflexivity.
