Bionic dog-like robot

effortless connecting rod structure, motion inverse-solved gait algorithm,
capable of performing sorts of gaits and functionalities

Posture self-balancing

embedded high precision 9-DOF motion sensor ICM20948
(3-axis accelerometer, 3-axis gyroscrope, 3-axis magnetometer)
accommodating to different terrains, featuring self-balancing capability, keeping the camera stable

5MP 160° wide angle camera

quality OV5647 sensor

Video Monitoring
High definition, low latency, real time video monitoring through the camera

Vision-based Line Following
After OpenCV image binarization process, getting the stray value by comparing the positions of image center line, which will be then used to control the movement of the robot, make it keep following the line.

Motion Detection
Capturing moving objects in the video by detecting the video images from the camera

Color Recognition & Tracking
Auto tracking specified color in the video image, allows different colors
