Locomotion, Manipulation, Mobile manipulation, Integration
A robot should be capable of both locomotion and manipulation when applied to tasks in construction, agriculture, home, office, and hospital services. This paper describes why and how locomotion and manipulation should be integrated, the benefits, and problems to be solved in practical application. This paper is based mainly on RSJ research committee discussions.
