IRIcar robot

The autonomous car is based on a standard golf cart that has been robotized. The robot is capable of carrying up to two adult people in slopes up to 30 degrees.With the information provided by a 32 beams 360º laser range sensor, a 360º camera and a frontal 2D ranger, the autonomous car can navigate in 2D environments taking into account the ackermann constraints.The robot has two safety laser scanners that allow it to safely navigate around people. The robot is not homologated, and it cannot travel with regular traffic.

Key features:
  • Loquendo text-to-speech software with english, spanish and catalan languages
  • Lots of optical sensors
Possible applications:
  • Human robot interaction
  • Autonomous people transportation system
  • 2D navigation with ackermann constraints
  • Teleoperation
