Open Automation Project

Posted December 13, 2011 by Chris

“The purpose of this project is to engineer modular software and electronic components, from which it is possible to assemble an intelligent mobile robot suitable for home/office environments. This project aims to fill the gap between the powerful mobile robot platforms typically used by researchers, and the small rug-roving robots with limited processing power that are popular with hobbyists.”

    I’ve been dreaming of building this type of robot for a VERY long time. It’s a real pleasure to read about the project design and thought processes behind it. I’d love to see what is possible with the latest PC-based SBC hardware and a freshened up design. Thanks for sharing this!
