Autonomous Mapping

During her spring internship at Fetch Robotics, Shiloh Curtis created a prototype autonomous exploration and mapping system for our Freight robots.

Our Freight robots are already capable of creating detailed maps of very large buildings, but currently a human must drive the robot through the area to be mapped. Shiloh’s work is a first step towards easier robot deployments. The robot can automatically select new areas to explore and then autonomously navigate to these locations.

Shiloh will be starting her studies at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology this fall and we look forward to seeing her future accomplishments.
