new 3d printable robot on the works
September 5, 2012
I need sensors for my robot not to fall from tables, etc. I thought of using sharp ir sensors, specifically GP2Y0D805Z0F - which is a digital sensor has has detection range of 5cm.
I am thinking of using two sensors, although if I can get away with using just one that would be better. I put a picture of the front of my robot. and I marked the optical axes from ground point to place on bot, i.e. sensor placement.
All I need is a nice cosy spot for the sensor. I will be opensourcing the 3d design, and i have already published the software on git hub.
Any recomendations and ideas are greatly appreciated.
