Robotic guidance is a large part of many research and design applications. It is being
used more frequently in everyday lifestyles such as vacuum cleaners and lawn mowers,
and is slowly being introduced into the automobile industry.
The need for this technology is growing evermore and different aspects and methods are
being implemented, from various sensor types to camera machine vision. This
dissertation is compiled to explore the use of one of these technologies implemented
into a small unit.
This dissertation develops and analyses the use of Mechatronic technology in the use of
household applications. The overall objective of this project is to implement a
microprocessor based controller in a small mobile robot to achieve straight line driving
with implemented obstacle avoidance.
