Flexible Navigation Control


Autonomous Robot 2D Navigation Control Move Base Flex

Nature Robots has co-developed the ROS navigation framework Move Base Flex. This runs on dozens of robots in production in large warehouses and acts as a middle layer for navigation control. It drives low-level planners and controllers that move the robot from A to B in an environment with static and dynamic obstacles and objects to complete tasks. It also provides a standardized interface to high-level robot systems and planners that unify and control all of the robot’s subcomponents in a regulated manner. All modules are ROS compatible.

The main components of a robust autonomous system are flexible navigation control, integration with higher-level tasks, and interaction with the environment.
