Autonomous Interoffice Delivery Robot (AIDeR) Environmental Cue Detection

Autonomous Interoffice Delivery Robot (AIDeR) is a project designed by the company Advanced Motion Controls (AMC) to provide a working demonstration of the various hardware components they manufacture. In particular, the purpose is to highlight the operation of servo drives. The robot is also functional in nature, in that it will autonomously navigate the building and deliver parts between and across portions of the facility. This thesis documents the methods which attempt to improve upon the accuracy of the previous functionality responsible for identifying environmental cues. Thus, the following document describes the details associated with the control task, the possible solutions which were examined, and finally the overall results obtained.
