Week 1 and 2: -> Installed required software, -> Fixed software issues, 2 members had to reinstall ubuntu 3 times plus some wireless network issues had to be fixed.
Week 3: -> Finished all tutorials -> Working on processing of a 2d map in Jazz simulator and Rviz to make the robot navigate autonomously. We are trying to measure distance in front of the robot in order to take decisions.
Week 4: -> The robot can now autonomously move through a given maze only using the LaserScan data. -> Given a corridor with exits, the robot is able to take the first exit.
Tasks for Week 5: -> Improve algorithm implementation to correct existing flaws -> Develop an algorithm for arrow detection using Camera in rViz. -> Work on methods to implement odometry data in the system.
Week 5 -> A new self aligning algorithm was implemented, and the robot is able to align itself in the simulator, given any initial angle and position inside the maze. -> Working on publishing the odometry data using tf
