15-494 Cognitive Robotics 2008 Final Project
Boundary Detection Manipulation
Results Future Work
Given an arbitrary convex
boundary, manipulate easter eggs such that one color
is on the outside and one is in the inside.
- Create a complex but convex
boundary using pink tape.
- The robot must keep all the
blue easter eggs inside the boundary and all the
orange eggs outside. Eggs on the wrong side of the boundary must be pushed
to the other side.
- Tricky issue: determining
which is the "inside" of the boundary, especially when you're
standing on top of it. This is the heart of the project.
- Robot patrols the boundary
and surrounding area looking for stray sheep that must be herded back to
where they belong.
- Human can move eggs around;
robot must notice and respond.
