In this paper, the authors present the continuation of the research done by the same authors on developing an upgradable mobile platform for smart application. The paper focuses on home automation including tele-caring and remote assistance. The platform developed in this research is 30x40x40cm and weigh approximately 2kg.The platform is capable of navigating itself to a selected location in a flat surface through an optimal path, when the map of that particular surface is given. A smart phone is used as a controlling module of the robot and it can be mounted on the robot through a given mounting dock where all the data communication between the robot and the smart phone happens through Bluetooth.
