robot mobile autopilot

vThe ultimate goal of our project is to transmit information from a computer, through wireless communication, to control the mobility of a robot on wheels. Infrared sensors will be a feature to detect objects within a given distance. Several areas of electrical engineering are being addressed within this project: the communication between objects by wireless radio frequencies, the control of the robot's servomotors, an algorithm communicating data to a computer communication port, and the programming and understanding of micro controllers. The problem or idea that we are trying to solve is the control of a robot using a computer and wireless communication. In the computer, a data base will be kept in order for the robot to request information about direction and distance to a desired location. The idea lies on the principle of mobile autopilot by accomplishing autonomous behavior of the robot as well as obstacle awareness through the use of infrared sensors
