Autonomous Humanoid Robot using ROS

My main robot project: I’m working to add a number of sensors using a Gumstix Overo FireStorm board. I’m planning to add, 2 vga cameras (this may change to a depth camera, might be easier just to use an off the shelf USB based depth camera like the DepthSense 325, or the Developer kit from Creative BTW, check out Intel’s Perceptual Computing SDK (http://software.intel.com/en-us/vcsource/tools/perceptual-computing-sdk)), and some accelerometers and a compass. I’ll continually build on this base platform to extend it’s capabilities. Not sure where this will go, but it should be pretty fun. -MI will present and discuss at least one autonomous bi-ped robot, discuss ROS and the steps to building bi-ped robots. I may be able to present some interesting technology from Intel. Stay tuned on that. Still hashing out the details.
