Tutor description

The operation of the robotic vacuum is going to be based on retrieving data from an array of inputs that will tell the condition of the floor space around the vacuum. These inputs include sonar, touch sensors, and a digital compass. Each of these parts will be described in further detail further on later in the documentation.

These inputs include sonar, touch sensors, and a digital compass. Each of these parts will be described in further detail further on later in the documentation. The data from these inputs will be fed into the chip(s) which through its software program will decide which direction the vacuum should move by sending the control signals out to the drive motors.[pic]Figure 1. The initial block diagram for the Autonomous Robotic Vacuum CleanerSpecification of the Blocks: There are 14 blocks in the block diagram of the robotic vacuum solution (Figure 1). The boxes in the figure indicate the action taken. Their functions are described below.Sonar Conversion and Filter: The sonar block, representative of the sonar sensor network, is comprised of transmitting and receiving signals to detect objects. (Note: The suggested model that will be discussed is the SRF04 Ranger from Acroname Products).After the battery supplies a voltage supply to the sensors, a trigger pulse input is needed to start the ranging. The processor will wait for an active low of the trigger pulse to come in. The sonar sensor will
