Fire Fighting Robot- Please HELP!!!

Hi all,

I'm designing a fire fighting robot for a project. The robot should find and blow a candle placed in a random place in a maze. I used a wall following algorithm which keeps a constant distance between wall and the robot. The algorithm I used doesn't allow the robot to go to the isolated partitions in the maze. Please suggest me an appropriate algorithm which enables the robot to go all the partitions in the maze.


regards.

Trinity-style firefighting? I tried that once several years ago in a local competition. That one isolated room is the problem isn't it?? :wink:

Wall following won't get you there 100%. In my case I drove forward briefly then was able to follow the outside wall of the island room and turned into the room (with mediocre consistency).

My next approach will almost certainly involve odometry and maybe even a gyro to aid navigation.
