Abstract [en]

In the world, research on autonomous navigation vehicles (AGV) is growing by the day. The goal with this project was to create an AGV and explore the possibility of using infrared reflections as a navigational method and how to achieve distinct reflection measurements from a surface. The thesis also discusses the possibility of using several units on a larger scale. In the progress of the project, a prototype vehicle was built to conduct the experiments to identify the suitability of infrared navigation. The testing of the prototype shows that navigation by IR can be very reliable under controlled circumstances. The project also explored how hierarchical software architecture stands in comparison to purely local or centralized software architecture.

Abstract [sv]

I världen växer forskning på självgående fordon dagligen. Målet med detta projekt var att skapa ett självgående fordon och utforska möjligheterna att använda infraröda reflektioner som navigeringsmetod och hur man kan uppnå distinkta mätvärden. Avhandlingen diskuterar även möjligheterna att använda flera prototyper i en större skala. Under projektets gång byggdes ett prototypfordon för att genomföra experimenten angående lämpligheten med navigering via infrarött ljus. Tester med prototypen visar att navigering via infrarött ljus är väldigt pålitligt under kontrollerade omständigheter. Projektet utforskar även hur hierarkisk mjukvaruarkitektur står sig mot helt lokal eller centraliserad mjukvaruarkitektur.
