A low-power seismic detector and classifier was designed and implemented which was able to detect the footsteps of a person from as far as 35 meters away. Throughout the design an emphasis was placed on using low power circuitry and efficient algorithms. The test platform to demonstrate the concepts of the design utilizes a revolutionary low-power(More)
Obstacle detection is an essential function for autonomous mobile robots. Current autonomous systems are generally heavy, high-powered devices. Additionally, obstacle detection systems often employ active ranging sensors that exhibit poor angular resolution, thereby preventing vehicles from navigating through narrow spaces. Other systems require(More)
