Abstract:

This report describes the development of M4, a mobile robot project in joint development with the MIT Leg Lab. Because M4 is a quadruped automaton it must incorporate a vision system that allows for real-time interpretation of its surroundings and response to its own initiatives in those surroundings. This mutual feedback and correlation between the active vision and sensory-motor systems is imperative for such biologically inspired designs.
