Xr-B3 – Trossen Robotics Project

Trossen Robotics just completed their latest project contest, the Xr-B3 didn’t win but it is a very cool creation!

"He is powered by an AVR ATMEGA324P micro controller on a custom board that I made. He is using an XBEE module to communicate with my PC (and eventually with other robots). Onboard sensory includes: 2 Sharp IR sensors (for wall following and obstacle detection), an SRF-05 sonar sensor and AVRcam. The sonar and camera are mounted in a 2-axis head. He also has quadrature encoders on each wheel, I currently have code implemented for closed loop turns and rolling forward a set distance, but have yet to do continuous speed control. Currently, he still doesn’t do that much. This is intended to be my map-making test platform. He currently does have an onboard planner that, when given an a priori topological map of an area, can navigate the area. I’m still working out the bugs in his ability to actually build the topological map of an area."

    My dog can do that. If someone combined all these robots togethe, they might have something useful. I want a robot maid. When are those coming out?
