Autnomous robot with Acer aspire one

I've been working on this for about a year now.... It started up with a Traxxas summit carrying an asus aspire one. Uses a webcam for visual obstacle recognition along with a variety of sensors.
This was the first one.

Also recognizes basic hand signals

It has now been upgraded a little
I'm just editing the 8 hours worth of video I got and will be posting it shortly if there is any interest.

It's still using the summit suspension but I made the chassis from scratch and made a polycabonate box to hold everything. It's completely water proof and actually submersible.

lemme know what u think

Very Cool

I am very impressed with your UGV. I am sure you followed the Darpa challenge races. What are you working on now?
