Basics: How Do I Choose Appropriate Sensors?

Posted on February 06, 2012

By Coleman Benson & filled under Industry, Where to Start.

For a robot to react to its environment, it must first obtain information about its surroundings. Robots are not limited to just sight, sound, touch, smell and taste. Robots can not only sense but give accurate values for a variety of environmental factors that humans are otherwise unaware of or incapable of doing.  Measure Distance [...]

Neato XV-11 Open LiDAR Project, Hack It and Get it For Free!

Posted on November 18, 2010

By Carlos Asmat & filled under Domestic.

William Cox from RobotBox created the Open Lidar Project. Basically he offers a 400$ bounty to the first person who is able to get useful data from the Neato XV-11 LiDAR and open his procedure and code. This initiative is inspired by a similar bounty offered by Adafruit to the first to hack the Kinect from Microsoft. [...]

Hi Jarcand Sir,
Thanks for your detailed reply. Please advise that do I need only one 12V power supply for powering it up , with the instructions you provided i.e "connect power to the 3-pin connector: black is ground and yellow is 12V."?

hi, Just want to confirm apart from the complete kit, is there any way to connect the stargazer to a pc? The pinouts from RB-HAg-01 could be soldered to a serial wire as per page 6 of the manual? Are there any pics for this? Also i could http://www.robotshop.com/en/ftdi-usb-to ... RB-Spa-432 but whi...

It seems quite complex to mount the Stargazer sensor as you describe it and modify it to work in this configuration. It might be simpler to simply use a regular camera and a vision system. You could even use a camera such as this one: http://www.robotshop.com/ProductInfo.aspx?pc=RB-Sea-05

I am using hagisonic stargazer rs 1.0 kit to work together with irobot for localization, and the position data is transmitted through the 4 pin serial port "OUT" (RX,TX,GND and 5V). The 5V pin is left blank, and the other three are all connected. The stargazer ...

Ok, so let's say someone wanted a robot that would be able to move freely around their house autonomously. Say, to tell it to go to the kitchen from the bonus room and have it do so. What would it take to be able to do that?

... Stephen! That is an interesting project. You will need at least three receivers which should not be placed in a straight line in order to perform localization in 3D (assuming perfect spherical antennae). Ideally, you should get more in order to increase accuracy. You will need programmable transceivers ...

... object is detected. Next I need to add the ability of what to do if it finds objects to the left and right. My next addition will be some sort of localization (gps probably) allowing me to send a set of coordinates and have the rover drive itself there while avoiding objects on the way.
