Fischer, Gregory S.
The project was focused on a mobile research platform for autonomous navigation components and sensors vital to its autonomous interaction with its environment. The goal of this project was to create such a mobile robotic platform, which would in turn be capable of acting as a fully autonomous tour guide for the WPI campus. The project combined the robust capabilities of a Segway Robotic Mobility Platform with the cutting edge adaptability of the Robot Operating System software framework. The robot will work in conjunction with school staff to provide video tour information as part of an enhanced tour experience. The project is a highly visible representation of WPI's unique MQP program and its ability to prepare engineers capable of solving real world problems.
