Successful end-of-project demonstration

The project has now concluded with a very successful final demonstration to a number of students and members of staff. First, our “Poomba” robot (the Raspberry Pi Roomba) set out to autonomously explore the environment…

… and then we used the acquired data to map it (using ROS gmapping)

So, we have a proper mobile robot setup with ROS, the Raspberry Pi, a wireless network, and a host PC (running all the computation-heavy stuff like the mapping) ready to go for future projects.

Thanks to Mike, Jonathan, and Pete for their engagement and the fantastic work they have delivered.
