INSERVUM - Intelligente Serviceumgebungen

By G. Lawitzky, W. Grimm, E. Prassler and P. (eds.) Weierich

Abstract

Intelligent systems which are equipped with sensors and actuators and operate in direct contact with the real physical environment will play an essential role in the automation of services. They will help to reduce risks, and will provide convenience and additional quality of life. Assistance systems will - in cooperation with the user - enhance and complement his natural abilities in various ways. Flexible, intelligent robots and dedicated handling systems will be part of intelligent service environments. Today the scientific and technical problems on the way to real products still pose a major challenge. The results of the project INSERVUM (which was funded by the German government) which are included in this volume represent a substantial progress towards this goal. Most contributions in this volume are concerned with new algorithms and components which play a key role in service system applications: Intelligent, low-cost sensor systems, image processing, modeling of the environment and map building, navigation in difficult environments, and principles for control of service systems. A novel integrated tool allows the simulation of service robots and the automatic optimization of sensor configurations. Other contributions consider safety issues. Also contained are reports about two real application scenarios: An automatic fuelling station and mobility aids for disabled persons.
