Abstract

This paper describes the design and main characteristics of a graphical environment for the control of a mobile robot. The interface consists of several separate modules: (i) steering and manoeuvring controls; (ii) navigation maps; (iii) a vision system; (iv) a position monitoring system; (v) a position calibration system; (vi) manipulator arm control. For the sake of portability the user interface was designed and built using industry standards: Unix, X-Windows (X11R5+PEX), Motif and PHIGS.
