Adding a Wireless Access Point - Networking
So far for networking the JetsonBot we’ve been relying on an existing wireless network for communication between the JetsonBot and the Robot Operating Center (ROC). However, there are times when […]
An area of great improvement in the mobile device field over the last several years has been speech recognition. In part, this is due to advances in speech recognition algorithms, […]
The JetsonBot has companion software called the Robot Operating Center (ROC) which is run on a separate computer. The ROC can be run on a traditional laptop or desktop PC, […]
In the first prototype of the JetsonBot, there were two ‘duck’ antennas connected to an Intel 7260 Wireless/BT NIC card installed on the Jetson TK1, which were then taped to […]
The first autonomous demonstration of the JetsonBot shows autonomous following behavior. Looky here: Background In most science fiction settings, robots are autonomous. The most famous movie robots all operate on […]
Teleoperation can be thought of as operating a machine at a distance, similar to the term “remote control”. Let’s look at what it takes to control a JetsonBot with a […]
