The purpose of this project is to design an autonomous robot that will detect, verify and extinguish a lit candle that is randomly placed in the designated competition course. This will be achieved by utilizing sonar and infrared sensors coupled with brushed dc motor encoder feedback, to navigate the course and find the flame. Once the flame is found, it will be verified with specialized infrared sensors and extinguished with the on-board water pump system. This process will be realized with high quality, high speed parts coupled with powerful computing and algorithms that will ensure efficiency and speed.
