During this academic year, my Robotics module Comp2403 was taught through the Webots simulator. We used mainly the ePuck robot, a nice critter with a number of sensors including a color camera. Now we have in our posession one real, actual, physical, very expensive ePuck. This project will review various problems we solved using the Webot ePuck (line following, factory floor, maze-solving, object avoidance and basic navigation) and transfer these to the real ePuck. A cross-compiler is available, but we have no experience of using this.
Primary data would be drawn down from the simulated and physical ePuck. This could be used in a number of ways. One approach would be to critically compare the behaviour of real and simulated robot. Or you could choose to focus on the real ePuck and evaluate its performance in solving one or more problems.
