The e-puck robot is equipped with 8 IR proximity sensors placed as illustrated here:

 

IR proximity placement on the robot



 

Next figure is the raw data aquisition of IR0 (a front sensor) when the robot starts againts a wall and goes backwards. The X axis shows the number of steps of distance from the wall. 1000 steps correspond to 12.8cm.

Next figure is the computed sensor information (reflected light - ambient light) data aquisition of IR0 IR1 IR6 IR7 (the four front sensors) when robot is going backwards from a wall. The X axis represents the number of steps. 1000 steps correspond to 12.8cm.

data 4 sensor in front of wall

The next three figures show some noise on the sensor measurement due to the activity of the stepper motor turning at 100steps/s 400steps/s and 800steps/s. Sampling is made at 64Hz. This noise comes from the power supply of the e-puck. It seem to increase when battery is going down.
