"An inexpensive and reliable object finding robot with obstacle avoidance capabilities"

As the world of robotics becomes more popular, more people have begun to rely on autonomous systems that do everything for us. We have created a system that is able to search for a user-specified target based on RGB patterns and move towards such object until it is 10 cm away from it. Our robot is also able to avoid all obstacles that it encounters on its way to the target. The system is controlled by a Raspberry Pi unit that takes signals from a Pi-camera and four ultrasonic sensors.
