Artificial Intelligence Software for the Autonomous Interoffice Delivery Robot

The Autonomous Interoffice Delivery Robot (AIDeR) is a robot conceived by Advanced Motion Controls (A M C) for the purpose of demonstrating their servo drive hardware. The AIDeR's function is to take orders for the pickup and delivery of various items in an office environment, autonomously navigating the environment to carry out these orders. This thesis presents the design and implementation details of the artificial intelligence software layer that is responsible for high-level navigation, scheduling, and processing of delivery orders.
