Mobile manipulation research with an RMP 400

Using an RMP 400 as a test bed, Idaho National Lab (INL) and the Robotics Research Group at the University of Texas at Austin (RRG) integrated INL’s modular control software, RIK (Robot Intelligence Kernel) with RRG’s manipulation control software framework, OSCAR (Operational Software Components for Advanced Robotics) to develop an improved interface for robotic operation and control of mobile manipulation. The resulting system improves operator effectiveness by supplementing teleoperated control with optional automation of tasks such as navigation and target acquisition.
