AbstractThe purpose of the Virtual Mapping of Data Centers project is to create an imaging system designed to be mounted on top of an autonomous mobile platform that will create a virtual tour of Microsoft data centers. The imaging system will create a 360° “street view” that is designed to aid technicians in recognizing problems and to give tours to visitors without taking them inside the harsh environments that are common in data centers. It will also provide the option of streaming a live video feed for troubleshooting problems remotely. The system created by the Virtual Mapping of Data Centers project team will be mounted on an autonomous robot, Compact Autonomous Telemetry (CAT), designed and build by a previous senior design team. It will leverage this platform to autonomously navigate and map data centers with the designed imaging system, ensuring that technicians have easy access to what is happening inside of their data center.
