The objective of the R-Track Project is to design an intelligent multi-robot tracking and monitoring system that takes profit from the advantages of WSNs to provide real-time tracking of multiple robots towards the achievement of a common cooperative task (i.e. intrusion detection, target tracking, etc.)
Autonomous Navigation of a Wifibot Robot using Odometery for Obstacle Avoidance
This video shows a Wifibot Lab robot navigating in the corridors of the College of Computer and Information Sciences at Al-Imam Mohamed bin Saud University. It implements a simple odometry based algorithm to avoid obstacles while navigating.
The demo shows that the robot is able to navigate freely without hitting any obstacle and efficiently deviating from approaching obstacles. There is no apriori map embedded in the robot ((blind navigation). This work is done under the R-Track project.
