As my final univeristy project I'm implementing some algorithms for SLAM for a robot with a LIDAR. LIDARs are expensive for hobby projects, and I'm trying to build a cheap little robot and implement SLAM with a few cheap sensors, like IR or ultrasonic distance sensors.
I'm also interested in IMUs and sensor fusion, so the robot has a accelerometer + gyro module and a magnetometer module.
For implementing the algorithms, I will use Matlab. The connection between the robot and the computer will be made by bluetooth.
I will update this projects as soon as I will get results.
