This paper describes the overall conception and realisation of the Autonomous Mobile Outdoor Robot AMOR. The robot is specifically designed in accordance with the demands of robust operation in open terrain under arbitrary weather. Some aspects of the architecture and the implementation are discussed; e.g. some new sensors and the Virtual Sensor Actor Layer (VSAL) a middleware that allows easy use and reconfiguration of the system while preserving real-time capabilities. Finally some test results are given.
