Oculus Prime Automatic Docking Battery Charging
Oculus Prime Robot Charging Station
Docking with the wall-powered charging dock is handled automatically via 2D image processing through the included camera. The robot docks with the charger backwards, so it's not starting at a wall when charging.
The system can be configured to send a message (email, SMS, etc.) if it can't dock for some reason, to ask for help.
