3D scanning/artificial robot vision

This image was created via data from a sharp IR sensor and maxrobotics sonar, mounted on a pan/tilt servo setup.

 

The "real" image is not taken from the same perspective as the robot - as the robot has over 180 degree field of view (sorta, for the middle 1/3rd of the screen) it was pointless to try to replicate its view with a cameraphone.

 

So, here goes..

These are videos of my robot. A few improvements since these were done, more to come. Polou servo controller, python, wxwidgets, polymorph/shaplock plastic
