Abstract (Summary)

Robot mapping consists of using a robotic system to create the cartographic representation, or map, of an environment. This environment can have different shapes, sizes, and may be previously known or unknown. With a map, actions such as rescue, security, and construction, can be meticulously planned in terms of space for better efficiency and accuracy. The robotic platform designed in this industrial project is capable of autonomously creating the map of a previously unknown environment. Therefore, no human input is necessary in its operation. It uses wireless technology to communicate with the computing core, eliminating the necessity of cables to exchange data. In order to gather data from the environment, the mapping robot uses multiple sensors, namely three ultrasonic sensors, a gyroscope sensor, and a rotary encoder. A mapping application is created to receive the data and create a map of the environment.
