In this bachelorthesis project which I took part in, we developed an Automated Guided Vehicle, that could locate and navigate itself in a limited space. It sensed reflectors by using a one dimension infrared laser and used this to calculate it’s position. With an Arduino Mega it controled the motorspeed of the two tracks (powered by two Biltema screwdrivers), and at the same time communicated with the server.
Here’s a wrapup from the presentation of the project:
There where lots of test before the project was completed, here we tryied out the manual control on a laptop via bluetooth.
There where also a previous project the year before, this was their result:
