Mobile robots are an excellent testbed for autonomic computing research. The ultimate goal of robotics research is to develop a platform that can function autonomously in the face of hardware and software failures. This goal is becoming more important as robots are increasingly being deployed outside of controlled environments. In this paper, we discuss our work toward implementing an autonomic system for a mobile robot. This work is motivated by our experiences with existing mobile robot control software during real-world deployments.
