Skateboarding robot.
« on: September 13, 2012, 01:34:41 PM »
Some kids brought a RC car to the skatepark, I can't help but want an automated one. I was curious on the terms of sensors, could sonar or cameras be effective? What about Accelerometer?  Basically, the ability to ride up and down ramps, but not fall of the side (where there would be no slope) so to detect the slope, the pitch of the ramp and act accordingly.

Gyro and accelerometer should do  :)
