Abstract
This paper examines the implementation of a navigation and tour planner module using a drone as a tour guide. The project is a buildup on a subsequent project during a robotics class project at Ashesi University College. This was to aid the admissions team reduce pressure on Student Ambassadors and to also have tour guides available at all times. This paper describes the implementation of the navigation and tour planning modules. Planning a tour is formulated by the Wavefront Algorithm. Also described in this paper, is how Dijkstra’s shortest path algorithm is applied in conjunction with permutations to develop a tour planning module. Proper testing and evaluation were done to check the validity of the system.
