REPEATABLE PATH FOLLOWING KIT
The Visual Teach and Repeat (VT&R) Package is a vision-based outdoor navigation package designed for research and application development. The kit enables a robot to be taught an outdoor path, and then reliably and accurately repeat that path in environments using only a stereo camera. VT&R is capable of navigating GPS-denied environments and can handle a degree of changing lighting or weather conditions.
- Bumblebee XB3 stereo camera kit
- High Powered, GPU enabled Computer
- Visual Teach and Repeat Software Licence
- Rear facing stereo camera upgrade available
With the VT&R package, the robot can be taught to travel from any point a to point b along its pre-taught path, allowing for an infrastructure free, virtual rail system of connected waypoints.
VISION BASED SENSING
The VT&R Technology relies on visual odometry only, allowing it to function in GPS denied environments unlike many existing autonomy solution. The vision-only system enables implementation of repeatable outdoor path following or convoying that is both efficient and cost effective.
NEVER STOP LEARNING
Visual-only based navigation allows repeatable path following. Frequent traversing of routes accommodates learning changes in the landscape including weather, daylight, and more.
