At DIKU we have 4 Evolution Scorpion robots, which were purchased to replace the Eyebots. The Scorpions don't have their own processor, so you need to connect an external computer through USB.

Currently the robots only work with the ERSP software platform. Hopefully we'll be able to replace this platform with Player/Stage/Gazebo in a not to distant future.

Since the robots are purchased by the Image Group it is obvious to use them as a Vision platform. For this, it is recommended to use OpenCV, which works fine with ERSP as long as ERSP doesn't use the camera.

The robots come with a Logitech Quickcam Pro 3000 webcam. This camera is very wide-angle and gives a strong Barrel distortion. To undistort the image, the camera was calibrated, see "Kalibrering af Scorpion robotternes kamera" (in Danish).
