Abstract
This paper presents the design of an autonomous navigation system (NAUTILUS) and its simulation. The NAUTILUS system consists of four parts: (i) a triangle base with three program-mable wheels, (ii) a special digital compass based on the Grey code, (iii) a sonar system in a hexagonal configuration, and (iv) a microprocessor-controller which selects information from the above components and determines the navigation paths.
