Safe, Efficient and Integrated Indoor Robotic Fleet for Logistic Applications in Healthcare and Commercial Spaces


Final report on SLAM and sensor fusion for global localization of ENDORSE robots

This document will describe the technologies developed in Task 3.3 and Task 3.4, and will deliver the final modules to the system.

Final report on the optimization algorithms: Taxonomy, development and validation.

This deliverable will be composed of three parts: First part will consist in an exhaustive analysis of existing literature about different algorithms to deal with the assignment and routing problems identified in WP1. Second part will consist in a technical report with a full description of the new algorithms come from WP1 identified requirements, then it will demonstrate results on optimization algorithms tested in Simulation environment and on hardware (robots owned by UPV) in laboratory environment. Third part will include the algorithms’ source code.

Final report on human-aware path planning, system communication and destination recognition

This document will describe the technologies developed in Task 3.1 (prediction of human motion) Task 3.2 (system communication and destination recognition) and Task 3.5 (human-aware path planning). It will also deliver the final modules to the system.

Final report on user requirements, use cases and technical specifications

The report contains two parts. The first part gathers high level requirements from the Stakeholders and expectations from ENDORSE, Use Cases and definition of KPIs for healthcare in-door logistics environment. The second part gathers user and system functional and non-functional requirements, technical specifications and system architecture.

ENDORSE website and dissemination plan

The report will concern the targeted media and event to disseminate the results of the project: journal, website, specific conferences, workshop…). The website will be operational.
