IR Homing Beacon?
August 31, 2009
I'm looking to build an Beacon, IR or otherwise, that a robot can see and simply drive to. Pretty much like a docking station for the robot to be recharged or a robot that follows you. (unless that's something different...)
I did a few searches, but I've only come up with robots that use a beacon and not how to build the circuit and write the code.
I don't know if this helps, but I'm pretty much looking to build what CtC did here: http://letsmakerobots.com/node/6499
He talks a bit how he does it, but I don't really understand, so I'm just going to have to do more research on how works in general. Like how different frequency signals are encoded, sent, received, and decoded.
Am I on the right track?
Does this have anything to do with IR serial communication?
