Robotic Project 4: Vision


Tuesday Dec 7th for demonstration. Papers the following Thursday.


    You will create a robot that will wander around a semi open area looking for one of several brightly colored objects.


Your robot needs to use color vision to identify one of several objects in the environment. Your instructor will have randomly selected an object for you to find. Your robot must have a way of selecting the object using the robot interface (no hardcoding allowed). the robot will then move through the environment avoiding randomly placed obstacles (cardboard boxes). Once it has found the object it must approach within 12 cm of the object and play a short tune while identifying the object on its screen (text is fine).

The objects to include in your hunt

I will only ask you to find one per run. The item will be randomly selected. Each team will run on at least two items. You have a 3 minute time limit to actually find the items for the back of the room. If we get a larger venue (think Moakley atrium) the time limit will be extended.

The Project report

The project report is a report of what you tried to do, what you did, what you learned and what you accomplished. Once again here is a specific set of guidelines on what I'd like to see in it. Make sure you use section headings to make each section easy to find.
