This week I have been mainly using the sick laser, the beginning of the snackbot, to build maps of each floor in Carnegie Mellon’s Newell Simon Hall. The process simply involves running the sickLogger program on a laptop and driving the robot base around so that the laser can collect data.
After I finished scanning the entire floor, I went back to the lab and converted the data in to a map image using Mapper3. Below is a map image created before I arrived.
I have also been learning how to use various software that will be needed in actually teleoperating the robot once it is completly built. My task now, among others, is to write code that will display the status of the various senors on the robot
