Sound Following Robot- Google No Help
« on: April 09, 2012, 06:29:12 PM »
Hello everyone, I have spent at least an hour researching on google how to build a sound following robot. I would love if someone would send me a schematic or redirect me to a helpful website or someone I could talk to. Perhaps Arduino powered?

Hi,

Hello everyone, I have spent at least an hour researching on google how to build a sound following robot. I would love if someone would send me a schematic or redirect me to a helpful website or someone I could talk to. Perhaps Arduino powered?

I once spent more than 6 month tracking down a single datasheet and I probably spend a couple of hours (average) a day searching the web, so a single hour on Google is way to little to give up IMO :P ;D

Besides, in a few (literally) seconds, I got more than 1 million hits on "sound vore" and 30 times that on "sound-following-robot".
Just type (or copy-paste) the mentioned terms (less the quote marks) into Google.

And before you ask (on any forum), always search the forum first, as most stuff have been discussed before (and this topic has indeed cropped up from time to time).

A single thread here that mentions the subject:
http://www.societyofrobots.com/robotforum/index.php?topic=7048.0
Find more threads here as an exercise - the future demands that you get good at finding the pearls among the litter.
Regards,
Søren

A rather fast and fairly heavy robot with quite large wheels needs what? A lot of power?

Try googling "arduino sound localization" for some ideas.  A common method is to use multiple microphones and measure time differences for trilateralization.  Once you have a bearing direction toward the sound you can use line following techniques to control the robot motion toward the sound. There is a lot of information on line following out there that would apply.
Hopefully that helps a little.
