The idea of defining a boundary for the robot is one immediate application of this that I can think of.

Were talking about a domestic mobile robot that moves around in a real home environment. We need to bear in mind that at times our partners/children/pets may not want a robot encroaching in thier space.

Laying down a line that the robot cannot cross is one way of keeping everyone happy.

Re:914 Line Follower - 2007/12/31 10:03 Ive been using line following for a while now on my 914. My tests show that you can just about use line following to get a rough idea of the performance of the robot odometry on different surfaces. It might be worth using this method for calibrating the drive system.
