Can you give me the email address of your teacher? I'd like to tell him you aren't attempting to do it yourself but spamming a forum instead.
The college allow us to take help of any one XD

I'd like to tell him you aren't attempting to do it yourself but spamming a forum instead.Maybe what we should do is tell the teacher this is hardly a school project, although some countries refer to college/uni as "school". It's certainly not something to be done in 10 days, although of course we have no idea how long the OP has had to work on it already.Homing to a charger?.... pretty advanced stuff I'd say.
It doesn't make sense to make one yourself.
AAMOF and FWIW, a couple of days ago, I invented the 'exact opposite' of both the unplugger and the useless finger switcher for my robot (conceptual stage only). The robot has a regular on-off switch that shuts it down completely.When the robot comes into the charging dock, and seats itself correctly, the on-off switch will be shut off by a servo rotator. The batteries will charge, but robot is otherwise dead to the world. Once charging is complete, the charger will shut off. The charging dock, however, will be RF-linked to my home automation network (currently under construction). In general, the robot will likely be turned off completely. However, the automation network will be able to send a signal to the servo rotator, and flip the switch on the robot to on, as desired, to send the robot back into action.This may sound like a http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Parkinson's_lawtype of project, but it's not really. Eg, my roombavac does NOT have an on-off switch, and once it's out of its charger, and just sitting around doing nothing, the battery will go dead in a week or so. You have to remove the battery to prevent this. BIG PITN. I want my robot to not be so dumb as to eat its batteries when not in service. Voila.
This post might be able to help you: http://www.instructables.com/id/Robot-vacuum-floor-cleaner/ However, why doing you just buy a top rated robot vacuum cleaner instead (see http://www.vacuumtop.com/ for example)? It doesn't make sense to make one yourself.
