Let's Make Robots!

Robot Charlie


After some testing with Robot Bravo I realized that it would be helpful to have some other sensors to supplement the camera based vision.  I built a new platform with two sonar and two IR sensors.  Here is video of Charlie operating with only those four sensors. The camera is not used.  Now I have a much better platform to dig deeper into vision processing for object detection, navigation, etc.

Nice work, no doubt having those ultrasonic sensors equipped significantly reduces the processing load on the image analysis modules.
Is that a mouse scroll wheel I see at the back of Charlie?

Yes, the rear caster is a mouse scroll wheel and a safety pin.
