YCP Robot Project

The objective of this project was to build software to make an X80SVP robot autonomous. Software was developed using the Robot Operating System to control the robot using a wandering behavior that avoids obstacles. Software was also written to utilize a Microsoft Kinect to provide gesture recognition to operate the robot. Finally, in order to provide a suitable test environment, a 3D virtual simulator was created that can simulate a robot with sensor and motor functionality.
