Project 1: FlameBot
FlameBot is based upon the concept of a simple robot that finds fires
and puts them out. There are several competitions that sponsor the
development of such robots, most notably the one at Trinity
College. While eventually a home fire-fighting bot might become a
commercial reality, our current understanding of robotics somewhat
limits the scope of what we are able to do. In this project, we aim to
build a robot using the HandyBoard and LEGO
Mindstorms. Our robot shall be able to navigate a simple set of
rooms, avoiding walls and such, while looking for a candle. When it
finds the candle, it shall extinguish the candle. A similar
project was done by CS 154 students two years ago.
We have been following a design outline.
The code for Flamebot is available right here.
