|Willy is a vision-guided robot utilizing structured light techniques. He consists of a motor base unit and a PC computer tower. The motors are controlled with a 68HC11 MPU while the 5x86 tower computer processes vision and planning.
By using differential structured light techniques, a map of the region in front of Willy is developed. Willy then plans a route to its goal point using the A* search algorithm.
