Telepresence robots are getting more and more popular to be applied in different fields including distance meeting, home assisting, distance guarding, distance monitoring, actions anti terrorisms, distance education and other distance services.
In this thesis, I introduce the design methodology of telepresence robots applied in distance education, a complete process of telepresence robot design, simulation, building and test. First, hardware design including power design, sensor selection and circuit design are involved. Then it was path following and path planning. Finally, the software development including programming architecture selection and graphic user interface.
The target of this project is to develop a distance platform with telepresence robot in classrooms, distance teaching software for teachers and communicating server on cloud to maximize the outcome of distance education. The general idea is to make a safe, fast reacting, accurate motion, high power efficiency telepresence robot by applying SLAM, PID Control, Image processing and other techniques.
Finally, I discussed different combinations of components that has been designed in this thesis to satisfy different education environment requirement and minimize costs to help with widen the application of telepresence robot and its scalability.
