STAIR: Hardware and Software Architecture

Morgan Quigley, Eric Berger, Andrew Y. Ng

The STanford Artificial Intelligence Robot (STAIR) project is a long-term group effort aimed at producing a viable home and office assistant robot. As a small concrete step towards this goal, we showed a demonstration video at the 2007 AAAI Mobile Robot Exhibition of the STAIR 1 robot responding to a verbal command to fetch an item. Carrying out this task involved the integration of multiple components, including spoken dialog, navigation, computer visual object detection, and robotic grasping. This paper describes the hardware and software integration frameworks used to facilitate the development of these components and to bring them together for the demonstration.
