This report gives a description of the Mobile Robot Path Planner and Follower project. This description contains documentation for individual components as well as documentation for the whole mobile robot. These component descriptions are accompanied by appropriate theory and background. Also documented here are the tests performed on each component, as well as a test of the system as a whole. The results of those tests are given including a comparison to expected results. The final robot system performed excellently, obtaining an error level half that required of the system. Finally, some suggestions regarding the continuation of this project are presented. Additionally, six appendices are included: Construction Manual, Operation Manual, Group Member Contributions, Time-line, Costs, and Component Specifications. The entire source code is included as a separate document.
