RoboRealm Tutorials
Monday, 26 November 2007

I wanted to point out that RoboRealm have a few new interesting modules and a couple of tutorials that show you how to do some potentially useful things based on vision alone.

The trail follower tutorial looks incredibly useful - you could put markers around your house and potentially have your 914 travel from one to the next to follow a set route. If you used this in conjunction with something like C6Jones720's line follower/border idea, it could be a low cost and flexible way to solve some navigation issues.

Also the digital reader tutorial uses image matching to perform character recognition from a digital readout on what appears to be a domestic heating timer. I guess you could read the display on anything that you can't directly interface with to provide interaction between your 914 and the other household appliances.
