Abstract

This project consists of the design and implementation of a system to autonomously control two robots to accurately pursue a ball around a playing field. Sensory input is received via video from an overhead camera that is processed by a modified version of an open-source vision system. Decisions for the robot are made by an artificial intelligence layer and are executed in a control theory layer. The control theory layer sends the specific motor commands to the robot through an infra-red wireless network.
