Abstract: The research sensing capabilities of the EvBot II mobile robot platforms were increased and enhanced by the addition of the omni-directional camera. This, along with the associated machine vision capabilities maintained the conservative approach of the EvBot II philosophy, fiscal responsibility with computational optimality. The research increased the capabilities of the EvBot II platform by demonstrating that omni-directional vision processing could be performed relatively economically on a PC 104, while leaving as much processor time available as possible for running other programs.
