Topic: "LoMoR" - Sonor Mapping for Robots (Read 3 times) previous topic - next topic

I planned to make a robot that would do the same sort of thing as this, but send the data to my computer wirelessly. Would then have a program to use this data to build a map of the environment. Could then do some path finding with the map to tell the robot how to move around objects. I figure the hardest part would be to have the program always know where the robot is, otherwise things would get unsynced and all that.

Recommendation would be to use "Processing" as it lends its self to serial data and also Graphic Visualization so at least you can see what is happening.
At present i am experimenting with Making Robots with Senses (the project you see here is "Sight") which will be autonomous ie no external PCs.

I figured I would use C#, because that's the language I've been messing with lately. My programming abilities are much better than my electronic abilities (which aren't that great).

So maybe if I wanted to, throw some XNA graphics into the mix.

Compared to the Ultrasonic, i must say that the results are much cleaner.
This sensor will scan up to 150cm (tested).
