Celebration of Scholarship and Creative Activity 2021
Robots play an essential role in our society today. Robots are being deployed in ever-increasing numbers in industrial manufacturing, warehouse management, household appliances, autonomous navigation, remote sensing and monitoring. Mobile robots play an important role in a wide variety of remote exploration scenarios, both terrestrial and planetary. There are two essential functions of a mobile robot: autonomous navigation and sensing capability. In this poster, we present a characterization of the QBot2e developed by Quanser in terms of its imaging and autonomous mapping capabilities.
