This paper describes the design of the frame and power system of autonomous mobile robot intended to operate as an information portal, or an electronic hostess for indoor environment. The main goal is the construction of rigid and stable chassis considering sufficient proportions and low weight, considering other demands, such as low power consumption, robust safety precautions, construction ergonomics and sufficient space for all necessary equipment. On the contrary to commonly used differential chassis for indoor robots, the Ackerman type of chassis was chosen with additional swinging rear axle feature added, resulting in ability to overcome common indoor obstacles while keeping the stability and low power consumption.
