Design and implementation of an indoor positioning robot

MSc assignment

A theatre environment can be a challenging place for accurately positioning the robotic platform that needs to resist sudden impacts. The aim of this project is the design of a self-moving platform for a theatre performance. The platform has to position itself in a certain way to reflect bouncing balls.

A robotic system needs to be modelled, designed, realized and tested for this situation. The challenge lies in the fact that sensor fusion is needed to determine the orientation accurately. Moving between the setpoints needs to be done autonomously using SLAM.

A dynamic model should be developed to predict the effect of sudden impacts by juggling balls and to calculate an appropriate compensation response. The entire system should be realized and tested in a realistic test environment.
