Bumper Sensor with Mapping
« on: April 26, 2009, 09:01:31 PM »
I was checking if anyone knows how to implement the original bumper sensor with the Adaptive Mapping as described on the tutorial. My plan is to navigate a course primarily with the IR sensor with a backup being the bumper sensor incase of drift and any accumulated errors.

Any help in this matter would be greatly appreciated. Thank You.

If error builds up too much, your robot just needs to trash the map and start over. Your robot will need a program that says 'hey, map has changed too much lately, maybe something is wrong?'

The other solution is SLAM, but a bit too complex for a microcontroller/beginner. ;D
