Most of you have probably heard of Rovio. If not here is a youtube video of it.
One of the special feature of Rovio is its autodocking feature. With the use of a beacon in its dock,
it will automatically dock himself wherever it is in a room (passing through different obstacles) with just one click of the controller from its interface.
I want to incorporate this kind of technology on my mobot, with probably the use of a GPS. I will send to my mobot
the latitude and longitude of the location I want to go to and my mobot will automatically go there.
Can anyone think of a proper algorithm that will make this things happen? I can maybe add some sensors to make it avoid obstacles but still how can I make it go to the location I want to. Also do you think using GPS is a good idea? I thought of GPS because I don't want to have a beacon on each place I want to go ( about 4-5 locations).
Any suggestions, ideas, opinions would be much appreciated. Thanks a lot!
