A hand-held controller for operating a remote vehicle includes a controller body having right and left grips, a first set of input devices are disposed in a left control zone adjacent the left grip, and a second set of input devices are disposed in a right control zone adjacent the right grip. The first set of input devices includes a first analog joystick, a 4-way directional control, and a left rocker control. The second set of input devices includes a second analog joystick, an array of at least four buttons, and a right rocker control. The hand-held controller also includes a mode changer disposed on the controller body and configured to receive an input to change between two or more function modes. Each function mode assigns different functions to one or more of the input devices.

A power-saving robot system (100) includes at least one peripheral device (102) to be placed in an environment with a mobile robot (104). The peripheral device has a controller (1026) with an active mode (938) in which the peripheral device is fully operative, and a hibernation mode (932) in which the peripheral device is at least partly inactive. The mobile robot (104) has a controller (1046) with an activating routine (904) that communicates with the peripheral device (102) via wireless communication components (1024, 1044) and temporarily activates the peripheral device (102) from the hibernation mode (932) when the wireless communication components (1024, 1044) of the peripheral device (102) and the robot (104) come within range of one another.

A method of operating a robot includes electronically receiving images and augmenting the images by overlaying a representation of the robot on the images. The robot representation includes user-selectable portions. The method includes electronically displaying the augmented images and receiving an indication of a selection of at least one user-selectable portion of the robot representation. The method also includes electronically displaying an intent to command the selected at least one user-selectable portion of the robot representation, receiving an input representative of a user interaction with at least one user-selectable portion, and issuing a command to the robot based on the user interaction.

The present teachings provide a method of controlling a remote vehicle having an end effector and an image sensing device. The method includes obtaining an image of an object with the image sensing device, determining a ray from a focal point of the image to the object based on the obtained image, positioning the end effector of the remote vehicle to align with the determined ray, and moving the end effector along the determined ray to approach the object.

A control system for a mobile robot (10) is provided to effectively cover a given area by operating in a plurality of modes, including an obstacle following mode (51) and a random bounce mode (48). In other embodiments, spot coverage, such as spiraling (45), or other modes are also used to increase effectiveness. In addition, a behavior based architecture is used to implement the control system, and various escape behaviors are used to ensure full coverage.

A method of scheduling a robotic device enables the device (26, 104) to run autonomously based on previously loaded scheduling information. The method consists of a communication device (12), such as a hand-held remote device, that can directly control the robotic device (26, 104), or load scheduling information into the robotic device such that it will carry out a defined task at the desired time without the need for further external control. The communication device (12) can also be configured to load a scheduling application program into an existing robotic device, such that the robotic device can receive and implement scheduling information from a user.
