The objective of the system is to offer an integrated environment with mobile robots and support software for the programming and development of teaching activities to act in three specific areas: education, research and entertainment. This project proposes the development, the application and the transfer of technology from three sub-areas of information technology: Robotic Intelligence (RI), Artificial Vision (AV) and Automatic Speech Processing (ASP). These areas offer a high degree of originality and relevance for the scientific and industrial environment in relation to man-machine communication through voice and artificial vision. The importance of this project derives from the application of innovative technologies in RI, AV and ASP, to produce a national software and hardware kit applied to educational and entertainment robotics. In phase 1 of the work a main module with a robot base, a prototype of the Vision Module, a Radio-Modem Module and an Integrated Robot Programming and Control Environment were successfully developed. In phase 2 it is intended to take forward the development of the modules planned for this stage: Interactive Module, Image Processing Module, Infrared Vision Module, Grip Module and Voice Module.
