Abstract

In hostile environments at CERN and other similar scientific facilities, having a reliable mobile robot system is essential for successful execution of robotic missions and to avoid situations of manual recovery of the robots in the event that the robot runs out of energy. Because of environmental constraints, such mobile robots are usually battery-powered and hence energy management and optimization is one of the key challenges in this field. The ability to know beforehand the energy consumed by various elements of the robot (such as locomotion, sensors, controllers, computers and communication) will allow flexibility in planning or managing the tasks to be performed by the robot.
