Detects human faces, uses servos to track and point at the face
Using OpenCV to detect and track a human face then converting the coordinates into servo positions so a pan/tilt servos setup will point directly at the face. I … Read more
Detects human face and navigates toward face, stopping at a certain distance away from the face
Using a
OpenCV on the Raspberry Pi detects human faces. I modified the script to move the robot left or right based on the coordinates of the detected face so that the face … Read more
Intended as an unmanned ground vehicle (UGV) beta-testing platform for other technology development
This project is based around a Little Tikes H2 ride-on toy; it's a work-in-progress to ultimately result in a beta-testing UGV (unmanned ground vehicle) platform. I … Read more
MyzharBot will be an autonomous robot with Computer Vision capabilities. It will be able to follow roads, persons, object and so on
Using a
I love the Robotics since I was a young boy: "Mom, when I'm BIG I will create a robot that washes the floor, washes the clothes and irons them for you".  Read more
When complete, Navigate via GPS, colision avoidance sensors, and machine vision
Using a
I have decided to move on to other things, GPS had some serious flaws, one of which would require me to drill out all the rivets, remove his shell, and replace two … Read more

How to Build a Ping Pong Robot (YouTube)


The ModuPong YouTube channel is about a modular robotics system that tracks a ping pong ball in real-time. In addition, we cover in this channel how the system predicts and responds in less than 130ms.

Please tell me if you have any ideas on how we could make our system better. Cheaper and faster would be great!

Advice on BSc Final Year Project

I am currently in the final year of my Computer Science Degree, and for the dissertation as I am study Computer Vision as one of my modules I was considering a project which involved a robot which could locate and track objects. I believe though that this may be too simplistic for the course so I was wondering if anyone here could offer me some advice on the matter, as it would be very much appreciated. I'd have to site you as a source of reference as all such things have to be included in the project bibliography.  

Tracks human faces using a webcamera and two servo motors to pan and tilt
Using a
This is my first time using OpenCV, an open source computer vision library developed by Intel Corporation.  It wasn't too hard to get setup or use OpenCV in … Read more
Uses a webcam and robot vision to navigate around obstacles
Obstacle avoidance is one of the most important aspects of mobile robotics. Without it robot movement would be very restrictive and fragile. This tutorial explains … Read more
