The basic operation of the maze solving system begins with an aerial
image of a maze to be traversed.
Using image-processing algorithms, the target maze is converted
into a symbolic representation so that the shortest path through the
maze may be found. Having
obtained the shortest path, a set of instructions to successfully
traverse the maze will be wirelessly transmitted from the base-station
computer to a robot. Finally,
the robot will use a set of sensors and the path data to navigate from
the start of the maze to the finish.
