This paper describes the Stony Brook Robot Design Team's entry into the Scavenger Hunt Event at the 2005 American Association of Artificial Intelligence (AAAI) Robot Competition and Exhibition. The team has focused on two main areas of research in the creation of NavBot: structural design and computer vision. Our goal was to build an intelligent machine from scratch that could navigate the conference floor and detect specific objects at the AAAI Conference in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
