Project Details


CTI iProject - Robotic System for Room Mapping CTI iProject - Robotic System for Room Mapping Sensors and actuators are a big part of how we interact with the world around us. They help those who can't hear, they enable some of the amazing functions in our cell phones, and they support many aspects of national defense. We, at Sandia National Labs, are very interested in sensor capabilities that could enable mapping a room without video or infrared in a GPS denied area. We would like the students at Arizona State University to (1) Perform a market survey of possible sensor options to accomplish this task. (2) Postulate a system to perform room mapping using a combination or best of the sensors they find. (3) Develop a demonstration platform, predict and characterize its performance, through modeling, mathematics and other methods. And last (4) propose a path forward to improve their system, including specifications for sensors (even if not yet developed) and the best type of sensor for the ideal system. Deliverables will include as a minimum two written reports and two oral presentations detailing the findings of the student team.
