An essential component of human-robot interaction, even for the case when the robot operates autonomously, is the interface between the human and the robot. This paper presents an AJAX-based graphical user interface for a mobile robotic system that has multiple sensors (an ultrasonic array, a thermal sensor, and a video streaming system) to obtain information about the environment, a virtual field strategy for obstacle avoidance and path planning, and an ANFIS controller for path tracking. The particular focus here is on the graphical user interface (“GUI”) and how it integrates path planning for obstacle avoidance and displays path tracking information for system status monitoring of the robotic system. Experimental results and a preliminary evaluation shows that the proposed architecture is a feasible one for autonomous mobile robotic systems.
