Published on July 5, 2010 By codex

I have always wanted to experiment with robotics, and lately I’ve found the time to build an “intelligent”, open-source robotic platform. The platform runs embedded debian linux, and includes the following main capabilities: 1. Computer Vision (imitation of the human vision. The robot sees and “understands” what it sees). For this I have extensively used […]
