In this paper, we describe how we enhance the space sensing capabilities of the Ubiquitous Robotic Companion (URC) developed by ETRI Korea, by utilizing the plug-and-play service-oriented architecture provided by University of Florida's Atlas Platform. Based on our experience in deploying services using the Atlas Platform in smart houses, for the elderly and people with special needs, a requirement emerged for utilizing networked robots to assist elderly people in their activities of daily living. Networked robots consisting of sensors, actuators and smart devices can collaborate as mobile sensing platforms with the other networked robots in a smart space, providing a complex and sophisticated actuator and human interface. This paper describes our experience in designing and implementing system architecture to integrate URC robots into pervasive computing environments using the Atlas Platform. We also show how the integrated system is able to provide better services which enhance the space sensing capabilities of URCs in the smart space. © 2008 Springer-Verlag.
