A self-navigating robot for search and rescue

Hi NVIDIA Developers, I am glad to share my project here!

We built a self-navigating robot for search and rescue. The robot is able to perform a simplified “rescue mission” - autonomously find and pick up a blue block and then return it to origin.

We combine several functions and the whole work is built in ROS melodic:

  • SLAM
  • Object detection and Tracking
  • Arduino robot arm

The project workflow is designed as such:

Hope this can help more developers to build your projects! And feel free to contact me for any questions or support.
