Vision-Guided AGV
« on: October 26, 2013, 01:02:55 AM »
I would like to DIY a Vision-Guided AGV for hobby use. It should be able to do what all factory AGVs do, record a route and replay it. I'm having trouble with the vision portion of my project though, as I'm fairly new to robotics and wondering what kind of hardware would I need.

I have a Raspberry Pi with the Camera Module, is it sufficient?

Vision guidance is a challenging component of robotics, but there are definitely tools available to make it work. Check out OpenCV for starters, which would probably work with a RasPi and webcam, or if you want to start down the rabbit hole, look up ROS and possibly the Xbox Kinect. ROS is a framework for controlling high level robotic behaviour and can connect to the Kinect for vision. It's definitely not a beginner topic, but is immensely powerful. I've only gotten started but hope to make my robotic project have Kinect-vision.

Good luck!
