This project report looks at behaviour-based methods used for the control of an autonomous mobile robot. There are several distinct behaviours that can be used for the completion of the task required for the robot. The main behaviours of the robot can be said to be object detection, object handling and transportation, obstacle avoidance and goal detection. The behaviour-based scheme attempts to fulfill simple missions in which several behaviours compete for the vehicle’s control. A small-assembled robot model (Squarebot) is programmed to autonomously perform the task following the behavior– based scheme. The model is also modified to an extent so that it can easily and successfully perform all the operations. The model is evaluated in its ability to perform the assigned tasks, such as object detection and its manipulation. Furthermore, discussion about the proposed approach is given, as well as an overall description of the tasks to be performed by the robot.
