Sensing the Environment

Sensing the Environment

The robots need to know how to observe many different types of information from the environment:

Electromagnetic Spectrum 

Sound

Touch

Chemical Sensors 

Temperature

Range to things in the environment

The robots have to be able to process the data that is taken in from the environment.  

Ex:

Lawn Mower Robots = detect how fast grass grows to know when and how often to mow the lawn

Vacuum Robot = detects how much dirt is being taken in be the vacuum to know how long to stay in each particular area
