The autonomous robot photographer is officially done, and it has already successfully completed its first real-world assignment!
The robot has been deployed during the open-days in Oxford's Computer Science Department. It ran for nearly three hours, taking 103 photos (approximately one photo every two minutes). A short video from this deployment is shown below.
Now, for some good news (at least for some of you, anyway). I will be producing a detailed write-up of robot's implementation as part of my Master's dissertation. As soon as that is completed (in a month or so), I will release both the dissertation and the source code for all software that is powering the robot! Given that the robot is built using low cost off-the-shelf hardware parts, I hope that it will enable some of you to create even more awesome autonomous robots!
