Robot Navigation and/or Obstacle Avoidance


Robot navigation and obstacle avoidance is a complex topic, and still subject of much research. This project will identify one aspect of navigation or object avoidance and investigate it using simulated  robots. Possible aspects are (i) Navigation through rooms connected by doors, (ii) Navigation through a collection of obstacles, (iii) Learning to recognize elements in a maze and move through it. A fair amount of mathematics will be needed. This project will make use of the Webots robot simulation platform.
