Albatross is a prototype mechanism exploring the interplay of data collection and robotics combining a robotic machine with mapping visualization software. Named after Baudelaire's poem encapsulating the central streams of Romantic thought, Albatross is an autonomous structure that roams a space until the end of its life, mapping and scanning the area. It has two limitations; the limitation of the space and the limitation of the radio frequency (RF) that influences the movement of the robot in the physical space and the trace-making in the virtual space.
