With the fast paced development of robots, robot is becoming more human-like to increase the standard of current way of life. One such area is the autonomy of the robot in traveling around without human aid. The aim of this report serves to research, discuss and document the process of developing the mapping and path finding capabilities for the Autonomous Navigation robot. The report will compare current available sensors and select the sensor based on the requirements of range; area coverage; ease of usage; vulnerability to interference and cost. After which the development of the algorithm for both the mapping of an area as well as the path finding will be explained in details. Hence, the combination of the above discussed items will be implemented together with an existing robot to produce field experiment setups and obtain results.
