Free Range Robots (and hallways)
April 6, 2009
Uff-da... So I have pulled the training wheels off of Walter and am letting him rove around sans fences. I have actually had great luck with pre-solving a lot of problems (table legs and driving under things) but still I am running into a few problems.
I ask this as an open question.
What is a hallway to a robot? --We all know the right-left-right-left-right-left problem with corners and now, I am finding the same with hallways but instead, with my outward shooting side (keep away from the wall) sensors. Not to mention, if it is a dead end, it is continuing to follow standard code, turning away from the obsticle when it gets to the end thus leading to a 1/4 turn away, finding it just turned into a wall and backing only to find its ass hitting the other wall. --Here are some senerios --tell me what you think.
