THE VIDEOS OF, ESCAROB,
MY STAIR CLIMBING ROBOT ARE NOW AVAILABLE.
Now that the 2006 fall
got back to work, I finally received the videos we took
of my stair climbing robot. The robot was not R/C when we
shot those videos, that is why you can see a RJ45 cable
between the joystick and the robot.
You can see the
The first one shows my robot on plaine
one shows it's stair climbing capability and the third one
shows the robot climbing on PCs
I am now adding a pan/tilt IR
2.4Ghz transmitter and receiver, a GPS, inclinometers and
proximity sensors. I already
started working on the second generation which should be
a bit smaller and half the weight of the first one
One of the next steps will be
and then Fully autonomous but that will have to wait
considering the amount of hours I'll have to spend on
programming (assembly) because of security issues due to
the weight and speed (6kph) of the robot.
Comments or suggestions would
