Advanced Autonomous Mobile Robot

After our first robot experience, we tried to build an improved one. With better
spare parts/engineering and a sophisticated sensor/actuator balance.
The main idea was to program an infrared camera localization system with a wide angle lens and three leds on the top of the mobile robot. In that way
we know exactly the position, rotation and speed of the robot within 2x2 square meters.
Another advantage was that we could detect dynamic obstacles within the area.
