Introducing the RobotVisionToolkit
Eric Gregori will introduce the RobotVisionToolkit. A toolkit designed to make building smarter robots easier for everybody. The RobotVisionToolkit is a free download from www.EMGRobotics.com that allows anybody with basic programming skills to experiment with robotics, computer vision, speech recognition, and sensor algorithms. Computer vision algorithms like Viola Jones will be discussed. In addition, the need for tools like these, and what can be done with them will be discussed.
Mobile robots require seemingly complex real-time reactions to function in a dynamic environment. Development tools and kits are essential to accelerate design projects synchronizing so many interdependent functions. Learn about a free walking robot development kit and Robot Vision Toolkit that simplifies sensing, vision and walking algorithms. Observe a robot that integrates accelerometers to walk and balance on 1 leg.
