## Introduction

Howdy All,

Today I am going to be talking about some design work I've been doing for Ardie. If you recall, I recently discussed testing two new sensors for Ardie that I would be using for his eyes here. Since the tests went well, my next step was to determine where and how I wanted to mount those sensors on Ardie. In order to do that, I put together some schematics and Matlab code. Laying out the geometry of the sensors in the schematics allowed me to derive the mathematical relationships between where I mounted the senors, and what the field of view (FOV) of the sensors in front of Ardie would be. I could then use this math in Matlab code to vary the sensor mounting locations to determine which positions gave Ardie the optimal viewing field.
