The Tramchan mobile robot

This is a submission for the Nokia PUSH N900 contest. Tramchan is a mobile robot built over a Feiticeira brush to sweep dinig tables. This is a paper-made prototype, with the actual feiticeira, but “fake” N900, motors and wheels.

The robot will be able to avoid large obstacles, avoid dropping from the table borders, map its environment, localize itself, and autonomously plan paths to move over the detected dirt. It is based on modern techniques for monocular visual SLAM. You can find more details at .
