9th RTL Workshop: Autonomous Robot Running Linux for the Eurobot 2007 Competition

Nov 20, 2000 — by LinuxDevices Staff — from the LinuxDevices Archive — views

This paper presents technical solutions for an autonomous robot running GNU/Linux. While the majority of article focused on the software implementation, we will slightly describe some of our mechanical and electrical solutions as well. The paper outlines several interesting software built for embedded real- time application. Later we will take a look at the robot localization using a laser beacon, passive reflectors and an efficient algorithm for mobile robot localization, called Monte Carlo Localization.
