The adventures of BobBot Mk2: OMG a Can!

BobBot Mk2 has learned a new trick: finding a can.  Finding cans makes BobBot very happy; he even chirps when he sees one and gets very loud when it’s about 10 cms away from one. 

A lot of work still needs to be done:

  • Approach towards can needs to be PID controlled for smooth steering instead of the waggle it does now;
  • EOPD and US sensor will be replaced by simple touch sensors;
  • Can needs to have a destination of some sort, why else would BobBot pick it up, right?
  • Some of the behaviours need to be re-ordered for better prioritization.

Stay tuned for more adventures of BobBot Mk2!
