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.
