Un Banco de Pruebas Remoto para Experimentación en Robótica Ubicua

Adrián Jiménez González, José Ramiro Martínez de Dios, Alberto de San Bernabé, Gabriel Núñez, Aníbal Ollero

Resumen

La escasez de herramientas experimentales adecuadas ha sido señalada como un factor crítico en el desarrollo de la robótica ubícua. Este artículo describe un banco de pruebas remoto para experimentación en robótica ubicua integrando robots con redes inalámbricas de sensores. El banco de pruebas está compuesto por 5 robots Pioneer 3-AT, por una red de cámaras y por una red inalámbrica de sensores, todos ellos equipados con una amplia variedad de sensores. La arquitectura del banco de pruebas permite una gran diversidad de esquemas de cooperación entre sus elementos abstrayendo sus particularidades y capacidades sensoriales, computacionales y de comunicaciones. Permite ejecutar experimentos con distintos grados de descentralización. El banco de pruebas, instalado en la Escuela Técnica Superior de Ingeniería de la Universidad de Sevilla, es abierto y hace posible el acceso de forma remota mediante una interfaz gráfica intuitiva.

Palabras clave
