First, using matlab, write an algorithm to generate a series of waypoints that will cover a 5 by 5 meter area, (the “box.txt” environment in simple sim, our de-mining robot simulator) using each of three different strategies: (a) back-and-forth (“mowing the lawn”) motions, (b) spiraling, and (c) random motions. Your program should write the waypoints out to a file, in the form of ( x, y ) coordinates in two columns. Read in the data from the file and generate a plot of the waypoints. (Don’t specify waypoints too close to one another; a separation for example of at least 0.5 meters is desirable.) 2. Next, write a C program to generate...
