Aurro project is an open source Ankara University Robot project.We want our robot to have these capabilities :
PID motor control :controlling DC motors with Optical Encoder.We want to control motors for given velocity , torque and position
Robot Control : It's a low level control . We want robot to follow a given-reference path (a sinusoid track for example) that is the output of path planner.
Dead Reckoning : We want robot to achieve dead reckoning algorithm , probably using vision sensor
Obstacle Avoidance : Robot is supposed to do obstacle avoidance using low level sensor (IR sensors,mechanical switches , ultrasound bumpers etc) combined with vision sensors.
Path Planning : Sure path planning is an important part of robot navigation
Simultaneous Localization and Mapping : Robot is supposed to achieve EKF SLAM algorithm.
