In this paper, we describe Lewis the Graduate Student, Washington University’s entry in the AAAI Mobile Robot Competition Challenge Event. Lewis successfully completed a modified subset of the Challenge tasks, with a minimum of human intervention. We describe the architecture of our system, and how each sub-task was achieved. We also offer some thoughts on the performance of the system, and highlight our plans for future work.
