People who care for bedridden patients have great burdens in mind and body. The number of old-aged people in the population is increasing in Japan, the problem of care for bedridden patients will become an increasingly social problem. We are trying to solve this problem by developing a small mobile robot system for bedridden patients. The purpose of this system is to pick up and to bring a small object putting it somewhere inside the room semi-automatically. This mobile robot consists of a manipulator, visual sensor unit and mobile unit. This system gives information about the surrounding to the patient through the camera and monitor. When the patient directs an target object on the monitor, the system measures a 3-dimensional location of it, and the mobile unit approaches the object and the manipulator picks up and carries it back to the patient. This system is controlled by the image information and also by human through an interface based on images.
