General:I've worked on this one for about 2 months, with lots of interruptions and having only little continuous work time.
It was my university graduation project and major research work was on artificial vision.
Platform: modified RC truck, with servo controlled direction on front wheels, and geared (weak) motor on back wheels for propulsion.
Hardware: video camera, powered on 2 AA batteries, 2.6GHz video transceiver powered on 8xAA batteries, original car 35MHz RC control board connected to car's motors running on 4xAA batteries, remote PC running custom image processing software, that I've created at that time.
The performance was very good, the robot being capable of recognizing and following a laser spot projected in front of it (in the camera's view port).
Here are a few pictures of the robot vision itself:
