Who would have thought 10 years ago that NASA would still be gleaning all kinds of awesome intel from their golden Opportunity.
So, like, if you’re someone who would way rather do gardening from the comfort of your couch, then here’s the robot for you.
Whether because of harsh environments or the inherent limitations of sensor technology, output signals are rarely as clean as we'd like. Sensor noise can overwhelm a navigation system or even a simple robotics control system. You can take steps such as adding shielding to cables (adds weight), defining noise gates in software (takes space and degrades overall computational performance), and investing in better, more expensive sensors.
In this final installment, bestow some personality to your tablet-controlled robot by giving it a voice.
