Abstract

The primary goal of this MQP is to produce a user friendly robot that assists users in navigating a given area. Specifically, this group chose to focus on a hospital setting. In order to achieve this goal, the group designed a robot that was capable of navigation, possessed an arm with which to open doors, and that could be commanded by users from an intuitive on-board UI. A secondary goal of this MQP was to create an extensible platform for future groups. To achieve this goal, the team designed a modular backend system so that new modules could be added to the robot in the future with minimal time spent by future groups on integration.
