Terabee Follow-Me - Radio-frequency relative positioning system for mobile robots

follow me robot arduino

Radio-frequency relative positioning system providing heading and distance to target, designed for mobile robots and platforms.

This hardware kit consists of two beacons (a master and a slave), to be installed on a mobile platform, and remote control for the human operator. The remote control is battery powered and when the operator wants to be located by the beacons, he simply presses a button on the remote to activate the system.

With the button pressed, the system uses trigonometry to calculate distances and headings between the remote and the center point between the two beacons. In the case of a mobile robot, this data can be used by the robots’ navigation system to map a trajectory from itself to the operator.
