The Automowbot: Autonomous Mowing Robot
Corey Knauer and Eugene Schwanbeck IV
Advisor: Dr. William Hammond

The main objective of the Automowbot project is to develop a user oriented prototype of an autonomous vehicle steering system. The outcome of the project is the steering system applied to a drastically modified lawn tractor, available for demonstration. The control of the vehicle's direction and speed is accomplished by a radio control system in cooperation with an on-board computer. The system is equipped with modular hardware and software components which will be useful with a variety of autonomous systems. The Automowbot platform has also been developed to allow for easy incorporation of future considerations, including obstacle avoidance and Global Positioning System (GPS) modules.
