Avoider robots use sensors to avoid objects. They can navigate around a room, and around objects, without touching or bumping into them. Jamie and Howard used a Microrobot Avoider, to capture some ground level video. In the first video, you see the action of the avoider from our point of view. In the second video, a FlyCamOne (normally used on board radio controlled planes) was attached to the top of the robot.
We attached a FlyCamOne video camera to the top of the robot. This enabled the capture of video from ground level. The quality is not as good as the video above, partly because light levels were too low in the room. Next time we'll do this in day light!
