I’m back trying to make some test with the magni. however, where I intend to use it, there is pedestrian traffic.
One feedback I had was to put in place some collision detection. not obstacle detection. not obstacle avoidance.
The typical scenario is that the magni moves around on its mission, it then detects an obstacle that should be there.it’s actually a person turned opposite of magni, current speaking in an aisle with someone else. Since the environment is kinda noisy, none of those two people noticed that a robot just got nearby and is currently waiting for the “obstacle” to go away.
when the talk is over, that person turns around and rushes to its next destination, and as shes leaves, she just bumps into a non-moving magni.
There are several options to prevent this scenario. But here prevention is off-topic. Here, i want to detect that a collision has happened, in order to letter ask a user to “allow to resume operations”.
I have been requested to make some sort of a sensitive bumper. something made of foam that could somehow sense if something lightly bumped into it.
how would you make that?
Can some of you guys suggest a reference to buy that would fit the magni?
