Mobile robotic bases provide mobility for robotic serial manipulators and are essential for service technologies, warehouse applications, and robotics research. However, current mobile bases are expensive and require significant effort to integrate with robotic manipulators. The goal of this MQP was to design and implement a modular, programmable, and affordable mobile platform for interfacing with various manipulators. The team created a chassis and elevator system to increase mobility and introduce effortless electrical and mechanical integration with various manipulators utilizing a modular design. Furthermore, abstraction between user input and manipulator-specific hardware drivers was developed for seamless control of the base and manipulator.
