This paper describes a prototype of an ambient-intelligent advanced service robot of anthropomorphic characteristics that is intended for operation in indoor environment as well as for safe interaction with people. The robot consists of a wheeled mobile platform with a spinal (segmented) torso, bi-manual manipulation system with hands, and a robot head with capabilities to see, hear and speak. It is equipped with a number of advanced sensors, including indoor laser range finder, several ultrasonic probes as distance sensors and obstacle detectors, 3-axis inertial sensors with gyroscope, stereo vision system, 2 wide-range microphones, and 2 speakerphones. Its operation is autonomous but it may be controlled from a host computer through a wireless link. The robot prototype is expected to express advanced cognitive capabilities including spatial understanding, autonomous motion, affective and social behavior. The development of the robot is a joint effort of four Serbian academic institut...ions and it is expected to have it fully operational in the second half of 2015.
