Universal recharge, navigation and mapping system

WARNING! this blog is just my thoughts on the subject and may be prone to rambling, monologs and contradictions.

I want to develop a universal navigation system for my robots. By universal I mean that the same code should work on almost any robot with only minor modification to allow for I/O pins used and number / type of sensors. This code is being written for the Arduino but I will document the code well enough that it can be easily adapted for other processors.
