The video shows our work on anonymous robot systems. In this demonstration the robot navigates to the required unknown location as well as exploration and survey of the unknown area for map building. The robot equips 360° laser distance sensor for SLAM and navigation.
The series of demos showcase a series of SmartHome practices under Intelligent systems and Intelligent sensing (Internet of Things), more demos will be added from time to time.

“The Marauder's Map is a magical document that reveals all of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Not only does it show every classroom, every hallway, and every corner of the castle, but it also shows every inch of the grounds, as well as all the secret passages that are hidden within its walls and the location of every person in the grounds, portrayed by a dot….—— Harry Potter’s Wiki”
This project aims at developing a Web-based application built upon Internet of Things, through which we will not only know where everyone is but we will also know what they are doing.
