Autonomous Vacuum Robot


vacuum.jpg (89898 bytes)

This is an autonomous vacuum robot developed during the 2000 Capstone Senior Mechanical Design course at The Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science and Art.  This robot with its accompanying software can vacuum a room by importing an AutoCAD dxf map of the room and it's furniture.  It has a ring of bump sensors for collision detection and several infrared rangers for position determination.  Shaft encoders help the robot detect the distances it has traveled throughout the room.  A vacuum cleaner fitted with a custom nozzle allows it to pick up debris in its path.  This robot was at first controlled by the Parralax BASIC Stamp, but evolved to use the Handy Board robot controller.  Below is a shot of the vacuum robot circling the garbage can to clean around it.
