Dealing With Obstacles

A project log for Pretty Useless Machine

Fling the thing with a catapult, find it, bring it back, repeat.

I built a box (42 inches by 54 inches--3.5 inches high) to confine the Fetch system. Software is now in place so that the robot can find the object, but also recover if it bumps against a wall or other obstacle.

Next, I'll have to add some line following hardware and software so that the robot can follow a line back to the catapult.
