Woody the firefighting robot
« on: April 13, 2009, 09:42:37 PM »
Here is my current robot I just finished for school. let me know what you think.  Here is my site http://plaza.ufl.edu/sonictj/index_files/Woody%20the%20Firefighting%20Robot.htm.  I plan on using this robot for the next robot contest that arises.  Woody uses a Nintendo Wii remote's IR camera to sense the flame a $40 vision sensor.  The MCU is an ATmega644P.  All of the audio comes from the on-board speaker.

Thanks its my most elaborate design yet.  It was really fun to make.  If you look at my site I have some earlier video of it tracking the flame while doing obstacle avoidance.

The Wii remote has an infrared camera that sends center of mass data to my computer.  This data is interpreted in a program called GlovePie.  There I turn the Wii Remote x axis values into a virtual joystick to be read in the program Processing.  Processing then takes the joystick values and sends them as single byte numbers to my Atmega644P, via a bluesmirf.

As I said earlier, the Wiimote is for sensing the flame (ir robot vision).  The Wiimote'sinfrared camera does blob tracking.  The remote communicates with my computer for processing then this data is sent back to the mcu with a bluesmirf module.

hii sonictj, you said that “The remote communicates with my computer for processing then this data is sent back to the mcu”.
What processing does it do? Is image processing done for recognizing fire?
