Abstract. During the years 2014-2015 a kit called Yrobot was developed at the Department of technical cybernetics. The kit is a mobile robotic platform designed mainly to support technical education at high schools and universities. Since the kit was presented at conferences RAAD 2014 and EDERC 2014 for the first time, several expansion modules and interesting applications were developed. One application is presented in this paper. The application uses the mobility of wireless sensors to map the chosen area. As an example, we realized RSSI measurements and visualized them as a function of sensor position. Obviously, one can find many similar tasks: mapping of temperature or gas concentration in given space and the like. Our ultimate goal is to analyze the possibilities of using RSSI measurements for indoor localization. However, at this stage of research, we were focused just on acquiring the data and their subsequent visualization.
