jRover project. Running a VexPro robot controller. With 12 motors 6 for drive and 6 for steering. It has 3 ultrasonic sensors. It is built in the mars rover style using a rocker bogie based suspension. It higher level controlling software is ROS from Willow Garage. It uses opencv to detect the blobs of color we want to follow or drive through. I will post more actions videos as we get further along. I will also post its run at the +DPRG outdoor robotics contest which is to be run on Dec 16th.
