Selected Problems of Navigation of Educational Mobile Robot
Robotics is actually one of the most important technologies; which in the last year has been developing very fast. It’s interdisciplinary since combine mechanics, automatic, electric, and computer since. This paper presents generally the problems in navigation which should be solved by all who wants to build such educational and mobile robots [1, 3, 5, and 7]. For this reason the mechanical structure, module of communication, digital sonar and main board of autonomous and mobile robot for laboratory tasks has been described [2, 4]. After that the operation principle was given and some of the realized tests have been shown. A next possibility of development of the robot has been presented. Moreover the way, which satisfies the need of the large computational power on usually small platforms of mobile robots and the most advantageous sorts of the power supply from the point of view of the robot which realizes specify functions has been described. At the end of paper the conclusions has been extracted. Wide laboratory tests of the robot presented in this paper fully confirm all guideliness. In spite of fact that the device is very simple and very cheep, succesfully meet tasks in teaching, and enables students to meet fascinating subject of the mobile robots. Possibility of extension this subject can be continued during realization of other programs.
