Navigation using distance matrix

TECHNOLOGY : ROBOTICS
Now we consider a robot located in a completely known world. All the obstacles are mapped, the goal position is defined and the robot position is known. This kind of scenario is common for example in videogames, in which the agent controlled by the cpu has to reach some location. But another important scenario for this application is the C-Space of any robot in which work space all the obstacles are known and fixed. Applying cell decomposition we can construct a n-dimensional matrix representing

TECHNOLOGY : ROBOTICS
arcus from Evosapien.com either has too much free time in his hands or really likes hacking his robots. Recently he uploaded instructions telling us how to hack Robosapien V2 such that it handles a homemade BB gun with laser sight controlled via the WowWee supplied remote. Marcus calls his creation the CoilOsapien. You probably have to have some experience with electronics before you set out to implement this hack. Also, if you build it, make sure not to aim at anything that can brake because th
