Abstract
(EN) An unmanned ground-based hygiene maintenance vehicle, UGV, includes a housing, having a base plate, a top plate and at least one housing side wall that is substantially perpendicular to the base plate. Arranged in the housing is at least one wheel drive, which is coupled to at least one wheel. The wheel is arranged in a recess in the base plate. The UGV further includes a plurality of sensors for sensing the environment of the UGV, and a controller for autonomous location and navigation of the UGV on the basis of sensing parameters of the plurality of sensors. The UGV includes an articulated robot arm mounted on the top plate of the housing and configured to support a hygiene maintenance tool. The UGV includes at least one load-receiving element that is coupled to the housing side wall and extends outwards from the housing side wall, wherein the load-receiving element comprises a load support surface for supporting a hygiene maintenance tool supply module with respect to a vertical direction which extends transverse to the base plate.
