The objective of this project is to make a trash can that you can call to your place if you need to throw away garbage. Also the trash can must be capable of return to his place.

To accomplish these task our machine must have these abilities:
-avoid obstacles or communicate when it is impossible to pass.
-detect a call signal
-navigation with a map

In our first prototype our machine don't have the ability to navigate with a map because it is hard to accomplish and high cost. To supply this we use another approach. The robot won't know his position but will know if he is moving in the right way or if he is not. To accomplish this we use infrared beacons and infrared sensors.
