Abstract [en]

This thesis describes the work to make a portable ubiquitous device into a component

in a networked robotic environment. The device can both control and

be controlled in a robotic network as well as used to survey a robotic network.

This is done by building upon existing software for making networked robotic

components and use it on devices with the Android operating system. The software

is the

PEIS-kernel (Physically Embedded Intelligent System) middleware.

The middleware makes it possible to build robotic components called PEIScomponents

that can communicate, work together and share their resources

and capabilities. The result of this work is three-fold,

first a way to make devices

with the Android operating system into PEIS-devices so that they can be

used to control or be controlled as well as survey a PEIS-network.With this the

Android device functionality can be used to extend the capabilities of an entire


Secondly, devices with Android get access to a simple and powerful

way to exchange information with any device that is a PEIS-device. The


contribution is the capability to make humans a much more integral part

of a PEIS-network as devices with Android are in general easy to use and familiar

to humans. These devices will serve as a very good human - PEIS-network

interaction tool.
