Juego tangible con Lego Mindstorms

Juego tangible con Lego Mindstorms (programado con LeJOS). El ordenador conoce la posición de los objetos mediante el sistema reacTIVision a través de una webcam situada en posición cenital. Proyecto realizado en la Universidad de Zaragoza.
Un jugador coloca los obstáculos (fijos, no se pueden mover) y las torretas (las puede desplazar el robot y le disparan cuando pasa por delante) en el campo de juego. El otro jugador debe colocar una serie de marcadores numerados para indicar al robot los puntos a los que debe moverse para llegar al destino. Si el robot intenta atravesar un obstáculo no podrá y si pasa por delante de una torre le quitará una vida.

The Tramchan mobile robot

This is a submission for the Nokia PUSH N900 contest. Tramchan is a mobile robot built over a Feiticeira brush to sweep dinig tables. This is a paper-made prototype, with the actual feiticeira, but “fake” N900, motors and wheels.

The robot will be able to avoid large obstacles, avoid dropping from the table borders, map its environment, localize itself, and autonomously plan paths to move over the detected dirt. It is based on modern techniques for monocular visual SLAM. You can find more details at http://tramchan.tumblr.com .
