This is the first post about my internship. Actually it’s not really an internship, but it’ll do for the explanation. The idea is that we make a robot. It’s not as futuristic as it sounds. The robot will compete in a challenge.
In this game the robot has collect as many balls as possible. These balls have different colors and sizes. Our robot uses digital camera’s to find the balls by taking pictures.
We can use the robot that competed last year. But it did fail miserably, it didn’t get a single ball. So we have to do better. The robot will get a new grabber system, new sensors and new camera’s to do it’s job. The four of us have to make the operating software and the image recognition software. Two other students will upgrade the electronic parts of the robot.
