New article has just appeared on the AForge.NET web site ...

Title - Starting with Surveyor's Stereo Vision System board
"The article gives introduction to Surveyor's Stereo Vision (SVS) board aimed for robotics applications. It provides also information on how to start writing C# applications to control the board remotely."
With best regards,

Hi Andrew,

Your article is amazing~~!
I want to have a robot as well. After I saw your article, I checked the price of those components, 2 carmers and wifi are more than $550!!

It's still too expensive for me, I am still a student.
So do you know any other cheaper one?

Currently, I am studying in Australia, so it could be better, if the company was in Australia as well. ^_^

I am looking forward to your reply.

best regards

Winston

Hello,

You may try using Phidgets components. There are many different controllers and sensors. Most of them will require PC, which may not be a good option for mobile robot. However, quite recently they got new controller, which runs embedded Linux on it and has Wi-Fi connectivity. They have many dealers around the world. Also in Australia.

Yep, a bit expensive hobby. For my last one (WALL-E) I've spent around $1K (or a bit more) :shock: So now I cannot build anything else for quite a while :(
With best regards,
Andrew

Thanks!!!!

The most prices are acceptable,
However, they are not assembled.huh....it's a bit little tough for me as a beginner. +_+

Hopefully, I could find some guideline on that web site.

cheers ^^

Franva

ps: I searched this website, but I cant find the robot with cameras +_+,
does it mean that I have to assmble the controller and cameras?
And I didn't find any camera which can be assmbled on the controller...

And ideally, I want to have a robot with
2 cameras on the head which can rotate,
2 arms which can catch somethings(it's really cool ^^), and
3 or 4 wheels which can enable my lovely robot to move,and
a mic+ a speaker, cause I want to interact with my robot like a really AI robot ^^(at least it looks like, hahahaha)
plus a Wifi...because ,in some cases, I want to use my laptop to control it.

so, do you have any ideas about my plan +_+

by the way, can you show me your Wall-E robot? Because I saw a cartoon , there is a lovely robot with the same name. Are they same? :o
