- Greeting everyone.
I hope this finds everyone well.
I'm on a robotics design team at my university. (Though not sponsored
by the university). We are building a robot for an excavation challenge
coming up and where having some difficulties with the navigation. We
are trying to read a drop zone in a 4mX4m box. For the challenge we
have 24 volts at 6 amps and we're planning on stepping that down to 12
volts for the motors and other controll hardware. We are thinking about
using a camera to locate our drop zone and to avoid obstacles in are
path. Some of the compsci guys say it takes a lot of computing power
and memory to use camera on a robot. Is this true and is there any
small pc ( or of the like) that could be used to handle the camera? Or
is there anlternative approach to navigating that we could use? I know
we can't use any acoustic's...
Thanks for any help.
