Developing a mobile robot using GPS and vision subsystem for waypoint navigation and obstacle avoidance in an outdoor environment
Navigation for a mobile robot is the fundamental of robotics. The proposed method uses a differential drive system to navigate the robot from starting waypoints to finish waypoints using GPS to obtain latitude and longitude and a magnetometer for heading direction in an outdoor environment. Additionally, a monocular camera and ping sensor has been added to distinguish objects and the distance to the robot at the waypoints. Two methods are used for object detection, which are contour and SURF, while Qtextserialport is used to communicate between the mobile robot and a mini computer. Two power sources are being used, which are a powerbank and a Li-Po battery. Ultimately, the results can be monitored using a laptop via wifi module.
