This paper presents an extension to the Mobility Object Manager (MOM) for the RWI robots, which is currently being developed at the University of Essex. It presents a new user friendly interface extension to MOM for monitoring and interacting with the robot during the development of control algorithms. A new viewer has been incorporated to enable concurrent state reflection of both sensor and actuator data in a single window, with a module that implements interactive trajectory path planning. A motion error model has also been developed to mirror the approximate motion characteristics of the real robot in .simulation. Experiment results are presented to demonstrate the effectiveness of the approach.
