Objectives: The study aims at designing an Arena Mapping Rover that has adequate functions to optimally map and analyze the shape of an enclosed space, which cannot be satisfactorily done by the human being or which may be too hazardous for the human being to explore. Methods: The rover is capable of achieving this by moving around the different parts inside the arena. It continuously retrieves data related to the surrounding of enclosure and simultaneously sends the data to the computer. Findings: The computer processes the acquired data and presents a two dimensional reconstruction of the arena environment. Applications: The autonomous rover consists of a firm metal structure, which makes use of two stepper motor for precise movement inside the arena. Three infrared proximity sensors, facing three different directions detect the boundary and obstacles in vicinity.
