Probably A Gundam Prototype



This project is a computer vision and claw logic system (the System) implementable in a remote controlled claw system with exposed input and claw driver interfaces. The System will take input coordinates from the human-device interface (currently implemented as the Leap Motion hand tracker controller) and a video stream from a USB camera array. Using the video and coordinate input, the System determines if an obstruction interferes with the user-intended claw coordinates and transmits to the claw target coordinates as close to the user-intended coordinates as possible, given the constraints imposed by the detected obstruction. Furthermore, the System includes a recording function, which enters movement sequences into a database. These recorded sequences are capable of being accessed and used by the claw in an “autonomous” state via selecting the entry and “playing” it.
