i had this random idea
how about making the robot to move in straight line ,till it detects the Conner of the room (we can use some detection points ) once it detect it ,it will take the path with longest distance
and if it detects a obstacle it will go around it and take the straight path again

what do you think ?

Maybe possible. But with ultrasonic sensor, multipath problem is a big issue. Couple that with large reflection cone on HC SR05 and at max range of 4m, longest distance calculations are usually not very accurate. At times, off by 2 meters. Maybe if higher quality/priced sensors were used?

Building a basic robot wont be a problem
we will finish it soon
infact 80% work is done
the only major challenge is the software

how about using the opposite of it
when it detects the shortest path it will move opposite to it

We can use reverse engineering to know it’s actions opposite
