Project Sputnik: The Industrial Design Perspective on Mobile Robotic Telepresence
Sammanfattning: AASS, or the Center for Applied Autonomous Sensor Systems, is a research environment at Örebro University. This report will touch the development of a robot intended for elderly care in a project called "Project Sputnik". The robot is essentially a manually controlled communication robot that is driven by a pilot from a computer. The robot’s purpose is to provide the option of virtual visits between elders and healthcare professionals or family and friends. The requirements for the robot are numerous and the project itself is far too extensive for one student to complete in a 15 credit course. Therefore, the project was limited to the physical design only. During the pilot-study a large amount of research was done to gain a better understanding of the touched subjects and to prepare for the future development of the project. The project followed the design methodology to gradually develop a conceptual sketch. The concept should form a basis that AASS can continue the development on, and is therefore deliberately crude not to limit AASS in the continued work of Project Sputnik.
