Abstract [en]

The EU project DustBot addresses urban hydeience. Two types of robots were designed, the DustClean robot to autonomously clean pedestrian areas, and the DustCart robot for door-to-door garbage collection. Three prototype robots were built and equipped with electronic noses so as to enable them to collect environmental data while performing their urban hygiene tasks. Essentially, the robots act as a mobile, wirless node in a sensor network. In this paper we give an overview of the DusBot platform focusig on the Air Monitoring Module (AMM). We descibe the data flow between the robots throught the ubiquitous network to a gas distribution modelling server, where a gas deisribution model is computed. We descibe the Kernel DM+V algorithn, an approach to create statistical gas disdtribution models in the form of predictive mean and variance discrtized onto a grid map. Finally we present and discuss results obtained with the DustBot AMM during experimental trails performex in outdoor public places; a courtyard in Pontedera, Italy and a pedestrian square in Örebro, Sweden.
