Responding to User Interaction via Light
This example will allow Spot to respond to a light shining in its front left camera. The following describes what to expect:
with the robot sitting, shine a light into the front left camera, Spot should stand up
shine a light into the front left camera again, Spot should start tilting to follow the light
remove the light, Spot should sit down
NOTE: Both the light detection and controller are very crude. One needs to have a very steady hand to prevent the robot from “seeing” other bright lights in the front left camera.
See the requirements.txt file for a list of python dependencies which can be installed with pip using the command:
python3 -m pip install -r requirements.txt
Run the Example
To run the example:
python3 spot_light.py ROBOT_IP
E-Stop Endpoint Dependency
The example depends on an external E-Stop endpoint application to configure E-Stop and cut off power to all motors in the robot, if necessary. In parallel with this example, please run the E-Stop SDK example as the E-Stop controller.
