Feedback form is now closed.
In this talk, we will describe how we used a LASER rangefinder for navigation through rooms. The attendee will see how we equipped a small robot with the scanning LASER to aid in autonomous navigation including the Linux requirements and the control software. These techniques can be used for mapping 3D space or simply for obstacle avoidance. This will be demonstrated on a small embedded Linux-based mobile robot platform
