My Project Story
Its a project on creating a mini RC tank robot with the function like obstacle detecting and night light. Please hit me up if you are interested in participating in this project.
Obstacle avoidance is a means of a robot being able to move around in an unknown environment whilst not colliding with surrounding objects. Obstacle avoidance can be found on many different types of machines, big and industrial robots, or even on newer cars. Knowing how to program obstacle avoidance into your robots can be a very useful skill to have, whether for a little robot project, or a larger project where obstacle avoidance is just a small piece of the larger picture.
First of all check out the below video which runs you through the basics of obstacle avoidance, it runs for nearly twenty minutes so be prepared to learn a lot. After you have watched this video you can scroll down to check out further explanations of the examples shown and even some Arduino code.
