good thinking Really interesting, I'm waiting for you next reply with that video and more code explanation.
thanks for all that info, it has given me more inspiration for my current robot project. If you have more time and info, plz be my guest and post it
This is so Cool! Thanks for sharing!Nice job! You deserve the Grand Premium!A lot of inspiration for my work! I am currently brainstorming a new robot and I have to say that you gave me the ideea how to scan and move around. I'll give credits for it. I loved the movie, but text is fading too fast to read it, had to pause to read.I think that all it needs now is another servo for the mouth, so it can play fetch! Maybe a PIR sensor to find you?Wonderfull!
Cute! I like the ears and tail, nice touch You should add my stampy algorithm to it so that it chases stuff!
last night i added a IR detector .. i've never used one before, and i was surprised at how easy it was to implement . i'm using 200k resistor . i tried 300k but it was too sensetive and was picking up all sorts of ir . i find the 200k work well , i get about 4 feet of range .
It might get a bit complicated when you try to combine obstacle avoidance with ball chasing . . . what happens if a chair leg is between the robot and the ball? This is where your mapping stuff will come handy . . .Quotelast night i added a IR detector .. i've never used one before, and i was surprised at how easy it was to implement . i'm using 200k resistor . i tried 300k but it was too sensetive and was picking up all sorts of ir . i find the 200k work well , i get about 4 feet of range .what parts you using? that sounds too good of a range . . . is the IR emitter just very bright?to optimize for the best resistor value, use this equation:optimized_resistor = sqrt(R_dark*R_bright)where R_dark is the resistance of the IR detector without an emittor, and R_bright, is the resistance of the IR detector close to the emitter. use a multimeter of course . . .its the same way you optimize the paired resistor for a photoresistor sensor:http://www.societyofrobots.com/schematics_photoresistor.shtml
First of amazing robot! very inspirational. I do have a few questions. The PIR does it get interference from the IR distance sensor? Also do they work well outdoors? I want to do make an automated turret that tracks a person in 2D. For my R2-D2 project. The other question involves another star wars droid. Before I get to far into my R2 project I want to get more experience with sensors so I was going to start with a mouse droid that basically does most of the stuff your K-9 does. So I was curious about the programming to get him to follow you with the PIR. I'm assuming you just locate the larges infrared source and lock onto it them move forward and keep checking it to make sure its still there. but like I said I don't have much experience coding for sensors yet so any incite would be great:)ThanksJohnny B
soooo . . . ummmmm . . . what does a robot dog sound like?
