Abstract

This paper presents a new platform with a team of lab-scale networked mobile robotic manipulators (SumoMote) which merges a mobile manipulator with wireless mobile sensor networks. Many existing platforms built for mobile manipulation are big and expensive. Our SumoMote is built small and inexpensive for applications where quantity is more important than size. The hardware and software of the SumoMote will be described. Then two application scenarios will be presented to illustrate SumoMote’s capability in mobile sensor networks and how the added manipulator can help.
