Before anyone can help you, you're going to have to give a lot more information than that. First of all, what robotics platform are you using? Are you using ROBOTC to program?

Well, I fear we are not very e-pucky here in RobotC forums. :-(

Maybe; what are you using to program the robot? Not RobotC right?

After some Googling, I can see this is a PIC based robot, so it is probably programmed in either some kind of basic or C.

There is no "one-size-fits-all" solution to your location challenge. I assume this is probably some kind of homework assignment, considering the e-puck's target demographic (judging from the info on the website).

I'll help him a little. Here http://geology.heroy.smu.edu/~dpa-www/r ... r/imu_odo/ is where I figured it out. The part where you take that, and make it work on your robot is called learning. Good luck.

What is this "learning" you speak of? Is it an app I can download for my iPhone/Android device?

I never saw that movie, but there was a cool restaurant we used to go to a lot in Dublin called "The Forbidden Planet", which was all sci-fi themed :)

Getting slightly off-topic, I think.
