I am making a set of 2 robots to race any room, any home.. They follow the wall / drive around furnitures, and return where they started while racing each other.
This small test-video shows where I am now in developing the skid-turning needed for hard turns:
Notice how it sometimes mis-judges when the wall is not 90 degrees, but has bumps. But also how it handles getting out again
(Me proud, love this, think it is cool, it drives so much better than what I can do with remote myself)
Of course I could just give it some more space to turn in the code, to drive more "safe", but I kind of like it to be tight
And notice how it never bumps into anything else - the polystyrene-blocks would fly right off if it hit them.
I have added an extra battery for more power. I need to do that on the Porche (the other Wall Racer) as well, and then to optimize for general racing
(May do some lap-counting or something if I get to it)
