Robot prototype, designed, constructed and programmed and built by Martin Troeger as a diploma-theme. CYCLON appeared at the WDR-Computernacht (German TV-Computershow, 6 hours, without any commercials in between; 5th december 23:30 to 6th december 5:30 1998 )

some technical details:

Processor: Motorola 68xxxx
Motors: 12 Servo Motors
Camera: Connectix Quick Cam
Sensors: 2 infra-red
materials: complete aluminium
weight: 2 kg
construction/programming time: about four months

CYCLON is fully autonomous (unplugged) and orientates with his sensors and camera. One eye-catching application at the moment is the detection of balloons, wich he kills with harpunes (lets say needles...) ;-)
