A great evening at TechSpace! HackerGrant Demonstrations: We had four project demonstrations tonight: IVAN (In Vehicle Alert & Notification System ): Demonstration of an alarm that goes off if you are approaching a bridge that is to low for your vehicle or trailer. Robot Arm: Sub-milimeter accuracy with this DIY robot arm. It will be playing […]
A nice base was created for Project Armed, providing power and a nice counter balance for the arm to operate.
FollowBot is now moving forward and backwards, tracking the object size and decided what to do. Good progress! And it now has a bumper bar to prevent sore ankles 🙂
Added a bumper bar to the FollowBot while it is learning to drive. Also wide angle lens allows the Raspberry Pi to see better and track faster moving objects.
Just connected a 2-axis servo mount for the camera. Now the eye can track objects independently of the moving robot base. Good fun!
The “FollowBot” project comes to life with working left/right object recognition. A combination of Python & C++ running on a Raspberry Pi3 allows this robot to track an object and follow it around the room.
Great presentation by Henry about strongloop and loopback.
