Self-Mapping Mobile Robot Project

Posted May 7, 2012 by Chris

“The goal of the 2005 Telerobotics project was to start the autonomous navigation theme in the telerobotics series. Students designed a guide-bot that would guide its user to a location selected from the pre-encoded terrain map. Only acoustic sensors and wheel encoders were used for navigation and that made the project somewhat challenging to implement. It is much easier to navigate with laser distance sensors.”
