Optimally Coverage of Unknown Indoor Environment for a Mobile Robot Using Android Application

Optimally Coverage of Unknown Indoor Environment for a Mobile Robot Using Android ApplicationStudents: Nadine Toledano, Ori Ziskind
Instructor: Majd Srour

This project objective is to develop an Android application which implements the STC on-line algorithm as developed and shown in [1]. Our project’s goal was to implement an optimal navigation application of unknown bounded planar, on an Android device along with solving the problem of controlling a mobile robot in real-time. We achieved those challenges by utilization of the device’s camera, for getting input on the neighborhood environment, and avoiding obstacles. As well, we used a IOIO platform, which is attached to the robot, to manage and control the robot movement. We produced an Android application thats implements the on-line STC algorithm, and communicate with the IOIO board, sending it movement commands accordingly.
