Nowadays, robots are used to perform tasks that require great levels of precision or are simply repetitive. Mobile robots are able to move their position from one place to another in unstructured or structured environments to do their task with using sensor for their navigation. In this paper, we present some of current technology in mobile robots which can be implemented to intelligent vehicles based on their architecture that uses a sequence of three steps: Sense, Plan, and Act (SPA). For sensing, several sensors such as camera and proximity sensors are common modules for a mobile robot which can be also employed in an intelligent vehicle. Advanced technologies for planning in mobile robots can be employed to intelligent vehicles in order to organize and plan more intelligent behaviors. Furthermore trends in actuation of the mobile robot can be adapted to vehicles to achieve novel architecture in future cars.
