Abstract

The purpose of this Major Qualifying Project was to design and build a prototype of an autonomous mapping robot capable of producing a floor plan of the interior of a building. In order to accomplish this, several technologies were combined including, a laser rangefinder, ultrasonic sensors, optical encoders, an inertial sensor, and wireless networking to make a small, self-contained autonomous robot controlled by an ARM9 processor running embedded Linux. This robot was designed with future expansion in mind.
