It’s been the fantasy of numerous to have a house robot that is fit for meandering your rooms sitting tight for your next direction. In the event that you can hardly wait for the trillion dollar tech organizations to make precisely what you require you might be occupied with another DIY house pondering robot called NOX.
NOX is a differential-drive robot fabricated utilizing ROS, Raspberry Pi and Arduino and has been made by Hackster.io part RobinB, look at the recordings this underneath to see it in real life.
“I started the project as a robot base with basic navigation I could then use for other things, like a vacuum cleaner. However I quickly decided to make it a stand-alone robot with a proper design, as it’s often missing in DIY robots. In its current state the robot can use SLAM (gmapping) to create a map of its surroundings (using the Kinect depth perception to detect wall and obstacles) and localize itself within the map. It can plan a path to a given goal and drive to it avoiding obstacle. Nox is a nice (and time-consuming) robot which uses SLAM (ROS) with a Kinect to navigate in its environment.”
