This work presents development of a wind tracker (MOKHTAR 1 (Figure 1)) and implementation of Zigzag and Spiral algorithms for detecting the wind source [1]. Position Monitoring system PMS is added to the robot to help for robot movement monitoring. The path followed by the robot for locating the source of wind, is acquired and displayed graphically using visual basic 6. Both algorithms Zigzag and Spiral are implemented and their performance is compared with respect to Step size, Time taken and probability of reaching the wind source. Finally results of path monitoring for comparison between the two algorithms are shown.
