One of the first real Cloud Robotic Systems

A remote controlled mobile robot based on IntoRobot Cloud (www.intorobot.com) and IntoRobot Atom board. The control of the robot is through Internet. The robot can be shared to other via WeChat and WhatsApp easily.

Visual Homing-based topological Navigation

The mobile robot navigates in an indoor environment with illuminant changes by using an Omnidirectional Camera. Please refer to:
