Keywords: Ultrasonic;


This thesis covers the work performed to implement a Sonar sensor solution to detect human beings on a robotic lamp. A previously available solution was evaluated, but had to be redesigned due to faulty electronics. New hardware was developed, together with software to control this hardware. A software implementation of this new Sonar sensor system was also developed, on the robotic lamp itself.

The nature of this thesis was very practical, so this report will focus on describing the different design stages that were performed, together with a wide discussion about future improvements and work, in order to achieve a robotic lamp that interacts with a human in an interesting manner.
