Pocket PC controlled robot
Posted on 11-Aug-2003 21:29 | Tags Filed under: News


The author explains that his idea is to create robot capable of avoiding obstacles, controlling course, recording trajectory and completing "missions".

The robot was built using a radiocontrolled car (Tamiya Ford F-150) and a Handyboard, often used for robotic projects.



Using a CMUCAM (autonomous embarked camera) and a Polaroid Sonar, the IPAQ receives environment information, building an "image" of the surroundings. It then decides the next action to carry out and returns the orders to the HandyBoard, which in turn controls the servos and engine. all the communication is via IrDA.
