Abstract

A robot using computer vision to avoid obstacles was built for Depush, a Chinese company specializing in educational robotics. We used the Open Computer Vision library to implement stereo vision for obstacle detection. We then sent commands to the motors using a microcontroller. This robot successfully detected and avoided different kinds of obstacles such as bottles, chairs and walls.
