Autonomous vehicle navigation is a very popular research area in the vision and control field. Based on Prof. Dickmanns' philosophy, we implement a navigation algorithm on thc small robot. The robot can rely on its eyes (the camera mounted on thc top of the robot) and control its wheels to walk through the sub-basement hallways of Caltech Moore Lab building. The speed we achieve is robot's mechanical maximum speed 0.5 m/s.

Item Type:Report or Paper (Technical Report)
Additional Information:We would like to thank Drs. Psaltis and Perona for their instruction and advises. Special thanks go to Greg, Mario, Bob and David, without their contribution and technical emergent service, the robot will never walk safely around the hallway.
