Hi all, I’m new here.
I recently got a Zumo 32u4 and for my first project I wanted to make the zumo follow the wall/bookshelves etc of my apartment. Later I will make it plot coordinates and calculate the area of the room. But at the moment I’m struggling to make my zumo follow the wall.
I can make the zumo go forwards from where I set it off and stop when it’s left proximity sensor is less than 6 (past a corner). But that proximity of 6 never seems to be the same, and is not very precise (6=2-10 cm from the wall, 5=11-20, aprox.) Is there a way to make this more accurate? I’d like the zumo to skirt the room <5cm from the wall.
I could make the zumo do lots of small arcs, continuously bumping into the wall (collision detection) as it goes around the room, but that sounds like a horrible idea, ha!
Is there a way to fine tune the left proximity sensor? so the range from 0-6 is between 0-10cm or something?
Has anyone made a wall follower before with the 32u4?
Thanks for any help!
