I've made some mechanical and electronics changes to Rodney. The head has been completely rebuilt to accomodate the new firewire cameras, and the eyes can now virge together or move from side to side. There have also be en some minor changes to the torso and the new ASC-16 servo controller has been fitted.

I'll be testing out the new robot over the nextfew days. It's possible that the improved movement of the eyes may help me to devise a much simpler method for calculating the distance to an object by using the vigence angle together with some sort of disparity minimisation function.
