The 2004 intelligent ground vehicle competition design report of an autonomous robot platform called WunderBot was described. The 300 lb. robot was driven by two 1.755 Hp Dc motors and was exceptionally maneuverable. Specific GUI features include real-time obstacle mapping, path-planning simulation, sensor information, collision and low battery alarms, plus plots of motor current and velocity vs. time. All the project goals as well as customer requests through thoughtful design, quality parts, creative programming, and a variety of features were achieved.
