Abstract / Description

This video shows the output generated by a robot developed by UNSW Mechatronics (www.robotics.unsw.edu.au) during autonomous mapping of the UNSW campus. A SICK MS151 laser is use to generate a wide field of view point cloud which is transmitted to a remote Ground Control Station (GCS). The point cloud is used to generate an occupancy grid on which an efficient path planning algorithm is run in real-time to control the robot.
