Graphical interface for the control of the trajectory following of a sanitizing robot in controlled spaces
Keywords:Graphic user interface, Sanitizing robot, Simulated model of the robot, Path planning and trajectory tracking
In the present work, a Development Graphical User Interface for interaction with a tridimensional simulation model of a sanitizing robot in a simulated room is proposed for navigation algorithms tests implemented on it. At the same time, the behaviors of exploration and disinfection path planning are implemented. The simulated model of the robot is based on the Omnidirectional Nexus 4WOmni Wheel of which the kinematic model is also proposed. Additionally, a graphic user interface to give basic commands to the simulated robot is proposed. The results of the implementation are proved through the implementation of navigation algorithms to the robot, also the behaviors of exploration, path planning, and disinfection trajectory tracking, and interaction of the graphic interface with the simulation.
