- [luisgus] - I've tried using the MQ-2 Gas Sensor, which senses propane, butane and metane, but it works well only with farts, really. Since it can't touch anything liquid, it was a NO GO. I've tried with a cooler to try to pull the gases from a used diaper, and did not work too.
- [orcinus] - I think you'd need an H2S or mercaptane sensor for poo.

Plz help. We r on a project based on obstacle avoidance by a robot using neural. This is our plan :
A 6*6 matrix grid is used with dimensions of abt 25cm*25cm per square.
Any destination could be specified and the robot will have to take the shortest path from the first square. We decided to assign a number to each grid but the number of combinations have increased to a great extent. Could someone help us with the code.?? We r using tsop 1738 sensors to detect obstacles placed in any of the grids. We will be using a stepper motor to turn the vehicle. Plz help. Will provide more info soon.
I am not sure how to edit this type of page but here goes:-
Firstly (if I understand you correctly), do not try to identify each part of your grid with a unique number. Use a co-ordinate system. Co-ordinate simply means 'two numbers'.
define the lower/left corner as 0,0 and the top right as the limits of your area in what ever units you decide to use. The advantage of this system is that it gives you simple access to all of the geometry and trig functions required to calculate headings (bearings) to and from any part of your grid.
Does that help? If there is enough interest in this subject I could write an explanatory article on the principles of co-ordinate navigation with illustrations but I would probably need help to post it here. I am not talking about Arduino code, simply concepts and what trig/geometry is needed. Let me know if this would help. allanarduino(at)gmail etc...
