Doug / All,
Looking forward to the meeting.

I assume Carl Orr is possibly related to Carl Ott - the master of challenge course pretend (simulated) line following who has addressed the club on a number of occasions.

I have been working hard at random times to create both pretend and real line follower to give Carl some competition in upcoming contest(s). I must admit the pretend stuff is pretty addictive. My line follower both pretend and real is using simple analysis of 3 scanlines in images acquired by PI Video camera on real robot and by OpenGL camera on the fake one. Much less sophisticated approach than Carl's, but results are looking promising - I will bring a show and tell...

Ron Grant  

PS A plea to someone for a gift some Popsicle sticks so I can see if my real robot, which is kind of dainty, can handle driving over them without having to drag out the course.
