Laser irradiation is recorded to determine any obstacles encountered, whether permanent or temporary. According Archim Lelienthal, professor of computer science and leader of the research project from Orebro University, this robot will initially be focused to detect a permanent barrier and then improved its ability to detect semi-permanent barrier.
