Eyebot

EyeBot was developed at he University of Western Australia. The robot has differential steering, three infrared position sensitive devices (PSDs), a color CMOS camera, a digital compass, and a wireless communication module. The three distance data values from the PSDs and the robot's current location (delivered by shaft encoders) are sent to the host computer to update the map-building with HIMM in real-time. A new path is generated using the A* algorithm and transmitted to the robot. 3D map building is also constructed with distance data and the current robot position.
