Tibi and Dabo robots

Tibi and Dabo are two mobile urban service robots aimed to perform navigation and human robot interaction tasks.Navigation is based on the differential Segway RMP200 platform, able to work in balancing mode, which is useful to overcome low slope ramps. Two 2D horizontal laser range sensors allow obstacle detection and localization.Human robot interaction is achieved with two 2 degrees of freedom (dof) arms, a 3 dof head with some face expressions, a stereo camera, text-to-speech software and a touch screen.They can be used to provide information, guiding and steward services to persons in urban spaces, either alone or both in collaboration.

Key features:
  • Loquendo text-to-speech software with english, spanish and catalan languages
Possible applications:
  • Teleoperation
  • 2D navigation in urban environments
  • Human robot interaction
  • Multirobot systems
