We did another public test in the museum's lower level on 7/19 after doing some tweaking of the reaction module. I grabbed a screenshot of the latest web interface during the test. Definite progress, the kids went nuts.

Later that evening after the museum had closed, I did a test run of the localizer, planner and detection modules. Localization worked great, and the planner worked well. There was one collision with a dynamic obstacle, the cause of which is not currently known. The robot only turned away after the bumper switch was triggered, but the obstacle was visible to both IR sensors and the laser scanner long before the collision. Using the probability map generated by the localizer for entropy comparison, the people detection module hardly worked. Perhapse the more recent methods will be of benefit?
