Using Raspberry Pi, BrickPi expansion board, Lego Mindstorms NXT robot kit, R-Pi Camera module, and some nice easy Python wrappers for OpenCV 2 I have made a cute little autonomous ‘dog’ which chases after and ‘plays with’ the ball in behaviour emergent from simple programming (and mechanical shape of the robot). Project done as proof of concept hardware testing for Queensland University of Technology
