cb4 : A Summary

Daniel Myall


Figure 1: cb4

Current configuration:

Under this configuration it can successfully navigate a dynamic environment. It's highest level behaviour is to roam the house and find something living and follow it around. If it gets 'bored' of this behaviour, it will switch to a stealth mode where it hides in a dark place and waits until there is a loud sound or sudden movement - it then becomes highly active. It lasts 4-7 hours before it needs a recharge.
