Practical Robot Deployment: Towards an Increased Dependability of Robotic Systems

  • Robot deployment in realistic environments is challenging despite the fact that robots can be quite skilled at a large number of isolated tasks. One reason for this is that robots are rarely equipped with powerful introspection capabilities, which means that they cannot always deal with failures in an acceptable manner; in addition, manual diagnosis is often a tedious task that requires technicians to have a considerable set of robotics skills. In this paper, we discuss our ongoing efforts to address some of these problems. In particular, we (i) present our early efforts at developing a robotic black box and consider some factors that complicate its design, (ii) explain our component and system monitoring concept, and (iii) describe the necessity for remote monitoring and experimentation as well as our initial attempts at performing those. Our preliminary work opens a range of promising directions for making robots more usable and reliable in practice.
