Using Google Earth to plot a course at the park. In prep for Robo-Magellan 2014. Felix does a pretty good job of following the path. There is slight displacement, and the course isn’t perfect, mostly because we are unsure of the exact starting location, and it is all dead reckoning from there. It uses a 9DOF IMU. Adam Green wrote the IMU classes to filter and process the values. It tracks really well. Need to figure out how to get a fix on the starting location.

A video showing status of Felix as we are prepping for the Robo-Magellan competition at Robothon 2014 in Seattle Sept 20th at the Seattle Center. This is to show some of the things going on inside Felix at this point. Target and path plotting using Google Earth, reactive collision avoidance. Also note he is running much faster through the house. With only a couple of weeks left, can we pull it together in time?
