Stereo Vision Obstacle Detection
All LunaOS robots will feature a Stereo Vision Obstacle Detection (Avoidance) sensor. This sensor is a module complete with its own processor running the feature extraction and obstacle detection algorithm. All information about this sensor, its algorithm, and how you can replace the software can be found on this page.
Additionally, the sensor can be used for Visual SLAM. Though this feature does not initially ship with the robots, we welcome you to experiment and share your work here. As the technology matures, we will include it in subsequent versions of LunaOS.

Visual Simultaneous Localization and Mapping enables robots to map their dynamic environment and conduct path-planning and navigation within that environment. Our sensor module, containing a stereo vision rig, and its own processor, should be able to conduct vSLAM. We welcome collaboration with the community to perfect this technology for inclusion in the upcoming versions of LunaOS.
