Food Delivery Robot
Advisor: Steve Alexander, Professor of Physics
This project will result in a prototype robot that delivers food or other items to users in a number of different environments. If successful, we plan to add additional capabilities to expand its range and ability to operate in tougher conditions. The robot will be able to follow given coordinates to make deliveries and sense any obstacles in the way, and it will be able to detect when a customer has taken away the delivery. This will allow for easier access for users with disabilities, and add a general convenience for all. The robot will be battery-powered and in the future, upon completion, we plan to add the ability for the robot to return to a charging station when not in use.
