Abstrakt

We present how ubiquitous pressure sensor matrix can be used as information source for service-robots in two different applications. The textile pressure sensor, that utilizes the ubiquitousness of gravity, can be put on most surfaces in our environment to trace forces. As safety and human robot interaction are key factors for daily life service robots, we evaluated the pressure matrix in two scenarios: on the ground with toy furnitures demonstrating its capability for indoor localization and obstacle mapping, and on a sofa as an ubiquitous input device for giving commands to the robot in a natural way.
