Mapping the surroundings

How is Emo maneuvering? Does he map his surroundings as he learns them…or does he simply move until he runs up against (or close to) some obstacle?

Hey there…

as far as we know, EMO does not map his surrounding area, I don’t think his ToF sensor is being used for much at all too…


I liked the way my Vector kept track of his surroundings. But I must admit…Vector always had a problem with rounded-countertops.

I think any robot that has sensors underneath them for edge of cliff detection will have challenges with detecting rounded countertops. I guess it’s one set of conditions that is hard to detect vs a clear yes/no type of input.
