The development of an intelligent mobile robot capable of assisting a certain group of the handicapped is presented in this paper. The system consists of three units: a robot, a computer, and a user. All three units communicate completely by remote, using RF signals. The user and robot communicate indirectly through the computer, using natural voice. Each user command is decomposed int a sequence of motion commands, using an object-oriented knowledge base. Robot motion is planned based upon inputs from ultrasonic sensors. The system is capable of learning an unknown, albeit somewhat restricted environment.
