Introduction:

This is a custom made omni-wheel robot. The robot consists of a top pan/tile turret and a mobile base to perform omni-directional movement. The project is to develop an smart phone app to control this robot for a particular application.  An example of application is security patrol.  The app enables the robot to do self autonomous navigation. It can control the pan/title turret to use front/rear camera to monitor the sub-rounding  and makes alarm or alerts to staff in control center if any suspicious circumstance occupied.  Student may need to make extra accessories for the application.  For this patrol example, it can be  infra-red light torch for night guarding. Students can use 3D printing to make any accessories.  Therefore, tutorial on 3D printing and modelling will be given.  The firmware of the turret and firmware of mobile platform are written.  They are open to modify to suit any applications.

Application is open to student to propose.
