Tomba, the Home Explorer

via Wolf Paulus » Embedded

Tom’s LEGO NXT 2.0 based Home Explorer uses ultrasound to detect and bypass obstacles.
When driving, the NXT scans the surrounding using its ultrasound sensor. In case it gets too close to an obstacles, the NXT stops, backs-up a little, and makes a random turn (in a pre-defined range), before moving on.
Enjoy the movie, including cool onboard footage.
