Robotics update

5D Robotics recently posted some videos we shot about the current state of our robots (I especially like this one and this one).

I'm not a huge fan of the "trance" background music, but the videos do a good job showing what we're up to.

Looks pretty good-- although I was expecting one of them to go 'out of sight' to see how the robot responds. Still quite amazing. You're using range sensors without any visual cameras for that?

Correct, we're using a single 270 degree range sensor on the smaller robot (Segway RMP 400). On our larger robots we usually have 3 scanning lasers to get full and redundant coverage.
