1  Using Arduino / Sensors / Re: Possible to make wheeled robot travel to transmitter 50 feet away? on: April 26, 2011, 04:14:40 pm
I understand the scope of my goal.  I have about 5/6's of a year to complete it.  Does that mean there are no books pertaining to the specific manipulation of RF signals to have a robot follow a transmitter?

Exactly.  I apologize for not being so clear.  I would think RF Signals would be the way to go.  However, I have no idea how to go about using them.  Are there any books out there that can teach me?

I'm trying to make a robot that can keep up with a person who is running.  Will an IR Sensors/Ultrasonic sensors be able to do that?  Does that mean the person running should be carrying something that emits ultrasonic sounds?

I'm trying to make a three wheeled robot travel horizontally to a transmitter.  I was thinking about having it follow a radio signal (transmitter).  Meaning that if I had the radio signal on my person, it would be able to follow me as long as I was on fairly flat ground.  I would also like it to keep a good distance from the transmitter.  As you may already know, I do not know much about robotics but I would like to know what books/sites/parts I can use to make this a possibility.

I was reading a good deal about Directional Finding (DF) hardware.  Though I am still not sure how to code or do anything with the parts.  I have found this website so far:

Can someone please steer me in the right direction?

I am trying to build a robot that will follow a transmitter up to 50 feet away.  Possible a radio controlled transmitter.  My knowledge on robotics is not very much so please bear with me.

Would anyone mind please telling me what kind of parts I would need to create such a thing?  Or if this is even possible with an Arduino chip set.

Thank You
