Update video: laser sweep test

This video was recorded on April 1, 2014. It shows DORI performing a “rough” LIDAR laser sweep with a radial precision of 1mm and angular resolution of 0.1°. Each position is averaged over 3 samples to increase accuracy. In high resolution sweep mode the angular resolution can be increased to 0.01° (36000 steps per revolution). Note that at 01:28 the…

Update video: CAN test

The DORI core has 4 primary abilities: Nodes emit sensor values The values are logged A connection is established The log files are downloaded for analysis We have recently completed the driver code to perform file transfers over the CAN bus. A cell phone is used to signal DORI that it should connect to our…
