Robotic Devices: A Selection Guide for the Transit Environment

The objective of this project is to provide a guide to selecting robotic devices for use in the public transportation environments. The section on environments identifies the expected conditions a device must operate in and navigate through, and develops a prototypical requirements specification. A second section serves as a primer on the features available for robotic devices and provides a market survey of readily available systems that are appropriate for some identified environments. The third section demonstrates how to perform a selection analysis by matching a requirements specification against the market.
