LAWN BOWLS SCORING SYSTEM
Freelance Robotics has already developed an application for interactive lawn bowls scoring using smart devices known as Shot Keeper – we are now working on a fully automatic scoring system that uses an overhead camera to measure and record the score.
KittyHawk Lawn Bowls Scoring Camera
We developed a lawn bowls scoring system utilising object recognition and an overhead camera which pinpoints the jack, determining the scores of each team according to the colour and location of their bowls. This product is available for purchase via our Products page.
Freelance Robotics was engaged to design and develop the windows for a smart home design. This involved determining the optimum thickness for the glass and the space between the two glass panes, designing and manufacturing a frame that met Australian Standards, could be used for each window size and allowed the air between the glass panes to be removed after the glass was in place.
PIPE SURVEY VEHICLE
Freelance Robotics has designed multiple versions of a pipe survey vehicle to gather high resolution photographs of stormwater infrastructure. The vehicles consist of high definition cameras mounted on waterproof vehicles with caterpillar tracks. They can be controlled in either remote or tethered mode, using an application that also allows on-site completion of engineering reports.
ROAD SURFACE PROFILER
For a structural engineering client, Freelance Robotics developed a road surface profiler – surface roughness measuring system – based on accelerometers mounted on a vehicle chassis. This system offers significant improvements over laser-based systems that suffer from “washout” as the vehicle body sways around corners and over speed bumps.
