Abstract
At the department of Automatic Control at Lund Institute of Technology a mobile robot has to be assembled. The capabilities of the vehicle comprises a possibility to control it via internet with the help of a Java-applet as well as a function that realizes an autonomous navigation through a predefined environment. The first part of this work deals with the implementation of the remote control function. This involes setting up the hardware components and the realisation of different interfaces between these components. Another mode in which the robot can be driven ensures autonomous navigation in a known environment. Since the environment the robot is moving in is a corridor, it is a crucial part to guarantee the straight driving of the... (More)

Since the environment the robot is moving in is a corridor, it is a crucial part to guarantee the straight driving of the robot. Also, a simple map and the recognition of landmarks are necessary to orientate in the robots surroundings. In this context, pattern recognition is done by calculating the correlation coefficient.
