Robotic pacing finally hits manestream

It only took 3 years, but MIT & NASA finally caught up with the blog. Their version of the pacing robot uses line following for navigation & they didn't seem to have solved the manual control problem, yet. The line following is based on IR leds with a video camera so it only works at night, on a track.


It won't be long until they discover line following is not worth as much as an ergonomic manual control.
