State Estimation of Ground Robots
Started Apr. 21, 2023
Abstract or project description
Wesley would like to apply state estimation and path planning algorithms to his ground robot. In this project, we'll emphasize state estimation and also use path planning as needed. One algorithm of particular interest to Wesley is the Simultaneous Localization and Mapping (SLAM) algorithm. Wesley will create a SLAM or similar algorithm in his project with the plan of later implementing it on his robot. Wesley mentioned that he is most interested in software development, but also likes to see hardware come together. To facilitate this interest, I'll steer Wesley in a similar development method for creating aerospace flight code. First Wesley will develop a robot simulation in the Python language. Then, using the simulation, Wesley will create state estimation algorithms for the robot.
