Hey-I have used the Hokuyu that you reference in the other link. Just be carefull since it is very sensitive to sunlight. and its range is severly decreased on wet dark soil.http://www.societyofrobots.com/robotforum/index.php?topic=2372.msg15953;topicseen#msg15953
I assume this is the laser you're using because it's referenced in your other post?http://www.acroname.com/robotics/parts/R283-HOKUYO-LASER1.htmlIf so... That thing is EXPEEEENSIVE.
Tsukubadaisei-What type of filtering methods are you looking at?
Hi I found with the older scanner if it got dazzled the data it returned was complete garbage so the only reasonable thing that I could do was try to detect bad values and throw them out. I was using basic statistical methods where having an outlier could potentially bias the sliding average heavily. If you use a baysian approach than the bad values should be relatively harmless. The other issue was that when things had a low reflectivity (wet dark soil) the maximum range of the sensor would drop down to as low as ~1m...If Hokuyu is your sponsor try to get there new scanner http://www.acroname.com/robotics/parts/R314-HOKUYO-LASER4.html . Its only slightly larger yet has much better outdoor characteristics.
1)Can i post the tutorial as a pdf?2)If not, what should I do in order to start writting?

I usually get lots of sponsors. Hokuyu is my sponsor this time. So it is free for me .lol
so how are people suppose to follow this tutorial and build this robot if it uses a 2 thousand dollar laser?that's out of my reach financially and I have a decent paying career in computers, and for most of the younglings in here that's going to be impossible.
Now the bad news:->Got a girlfriend.
I tried to get this new sensor but they refused to give me. The reason is that they want to promote this particular model I am using. They said this is one of cheapest model to produce and has a very high performance/price ratio. From what I could understand, that is the model gives them the highest profit. But that is fine, I shouldnt be complaining at all, after all, it is not everyday you get a 2 grand sensor for free.
->Got a girlfriend.
Quote->Got a girlfriend.You should write a tutorial on that, too.
