Lawnsweeper Mark I is an autonomous leaf collection system which automates the normally tedious and time-consuming task of raking and collecting leaves for yard waste disposal. By navigating a residential yard in an efficient manner, avoiding obstacles, and collecting organic matter, Lawnsweeper Mark I aims to decrease time spent on the laborious, manual task of collecting fallen leaves. Lawnsweeper Mark I is a robotic system that is composed of the following sub systems: the robotics and leaf collection systems, various proximity and location sensors, and a software system to implement intelligent pathfinding algorithms.
Undergraduate Engineering students are required to complete a group-based, two-course capstone sequence: ENSC 405W and ENSC 440. Groups form company structures and create an innovative product that potentially acts as a solution to a real-life problem. This collection archives the following assignments: proposal, design specifications, requirements specifications, and proof of concept.
