Abstract

An information structured environment enables robots to complete specific tasks based on the information and knowledge provided by the environment. In our study, an information structured environment called u-RT space enabled a librarian robot to arrange books on bookshelves using ambient intelligence. The librarian robot consists of a manipulator, which can recognize and manipulate books, and a mobile platform, which can localize itself and navigate using ambient RFID tags embedded in a floor. The proposed u-RT space connects physical and virtual space using physical hyperlinks. The performance of the proposed librarian robot in u-RT space is evaluated by considering a particular scenario.
