Question, I am still working on my 1:1 R2 and I will be using saber tooth controller with my EZb. I am really wanting R2 to follow me at a certain distance when he is on auto (able to switch to my control at will as well) I have the EZ camera ( if that helps ) .. Has anyone out there mastered the way to do this ( bot follow..ect ) with switch to control via mobile ez app ( for iphone when it comes out ) ?
Upgrade to ARC Pro
Synthiam ARC Pro is a cool new tool that will help unleash your creativity with programming robots in just seconds!
Ping may work but could get complicated and have far more false positives (or wind up sitting looking at a wall).
Sound could be another option but, again, would be less accurate and more work than camera.
You can always take over manually just by using the movement panel, but once you stop, the automatic tracking will take back over, which may not be what you want. but a couple of buttons on the mobile interface to execute stop and start tracking scripts would be simple to implement.
I hope that helps. If you do need a script post again and when I'm done with the script I'm working on , I can help more.
I was trying to see if anyone had any examples of using multiple sensors reading in a arrays to get best results (since those ultrasonics need a good algorithm to get better readings) and then return all 3 or 4 sensors feedbacks to allow the droid to make decisions during the follow me sequence... speed matching etc.
Makes sense... just need to be shown where to start with multi sensors...
Getting PIR sensors integrated would be great too if DJ is listening.
By the way, PIR sensors are already "integrated" in ARC... I have used them in a few of my projects....
You can definitely accomplish what you want... but it does sound like specific "custom" programming....
