Abstract

The goal of the project is to design and build a robotic system able to locate a sound source via trilateration between multiple mobile robots on the same field, overseen by a master controller. As they navigate the test environment, these robots will demonstrate time difference of arrival (TDOA)-based localization and communication over a wireless network. Although previous research has proven that sound localization is possible on a mobile platform, this concept has not yet been shown for multiple mobile units that must communicate between each other. The intended application of this system is to model robot-aided search-and-rescue or underwater sound mapping.
