Internship: Adapting the BEECLUST algorithm to the ePuck robot and developing a color-sensing extension

Thomas Kunzfeld
Supervisor: Thomas Schmickl



The ALL team congratulates Thomas Kunzfeld for preparing one of the best 20 internship reports in 2011!

During the internship we have developed an ePuck extension that allows us to measure the color of overhead light using three seperate digital color sensors. Furthermore we have successfully ported the BEECLUST algorithm to the ePuck platform and have carried out preliminary experiments to measure the ability of ePucks to aggregate at bright light spots.
