Autonomous Robot

We aim to create a fully autonomous robot that is able to navigate around obstacles. Autonomous robots could save human lives on Earth and in space exploration by removing the need for human explorers in dangerous areas.


Our team learnt how to use arduinos, motors and sensors to make our project. The robot uses ultrasonic sensors to know what's around it and make sure it never crashes into walls. Our goal is to create an autonomous robot that could operate in dangerous areas, taking readings and sending vital data to researchers and rescue teams. From daily life to interplanetary exploration, autonomous robots can provide a massive helping hand to humanity.
