Abstract

This paper represents the technique of developing a ROS (Robot Operating System) based low cost mobile manipulator. Additionally, the contemporary commercial and custom ROS-based mobile manipulators have been discussed. In this paper, we have discussed how the performance of the high-end mobile manipulation platforms can be partially achieved by a low-cost custom made module implementing the basic packages of ROS. The architecture and till to date development on the platform-ATOM (Autonomous Testbed of Mobile Manipulation) has been also shown.
