Abstract

This paper presents a new wheeled mobile robot aimed at automating the crack preparation and sealing process. This robot is a differentially steered wheeled mobile robot with centrally located router and articulated sealant head. Additionally, a laser range sensor is installed on the front of the robot to allow for automated crack following. The sensor is slide mounted to provide the necessary field of view. A support vehicle provides all power and materials through the use of a tether, and also contains a vision based sensing system for crack identification. The robot position relative to the support vehicle is thus necessary, and it is accurately measured through a cable extension transducer based system. This paper discusses the unique system configuration.
