Super fast obstacle maze solving. How?
« on: November 20, 2014, 09:48:54 PM »
Hi guys!

I just want to get some idea about fast obstacle maze solving robot. Recently I saw a super fast maze solving robot at the Micro mouse competition.  Please refer the following link.


I am wondering how they have achieved this much of stability and accuracy at this very high speed level.

What kind of obstacle a detecting sensors suitable for this ? any special motor controller? motors? and what kind of algorithms should be used  for noise filtering etc.

I searched a lot and tried to find those information and some sample code. by still i couldn't.

Your ideas are really appreciated . Thanks! :)

I was curious, looked the video, then looked at the rules. The robot mice are allowed an initial mapping run. It is just a matter of running the known course after that. Looks like fun, I think even simple IR detection could be used here but for awesome accuracy it was probably sonic or laser distancing that was employed in my opinion.
