Mark your calendars, Snowbotics is back!
Snowbotics electronic workshop for youngsters.
Cordial invitation to the public:
ChiBots will be holding a RoBoMagellan Builder's Day Out. This event is an informal gathering of RoboMagellan builders to talk about their 'bots, test them and basically have a good time.
Everyone is invited to come and join us! If you are interested in RoboMagellan or just robotics in general this is the perfect time to meet and talk with the people that build ingenious robots.
A RoboMagellen robot can use a wide variety of technologies, including Parallax Propellers, Arduinos, TI MSP430s or even full fledged Mini ITX computers. And we can't leave out the LEGO NXT brick!
Event will be at the Moraine Valley Community College center quad on Nov 9 from 12 noon to about 4 PM. If you are planning to come, please register. There is no fee; everything, including the parking, is free.
Are you interested in the technologies behind RoboMagellan robots? Come on out! Bring warm clothing. We'll be happy to see you!
Time: From 12 noon to 4 PM
Want to know more about the SRS RoboMagellan competition rules? See below.
Robo-Magellan is a robotics competition emphasizing autonomous navigation and obstacle avoidance over varied, outdoor terrain. Robots have three opportunities to navigate from a starting point to an ending point and are scored on time required to complete the course with opportunities to lower the score based on contacting intermediate points.
Dead reckoning navigation
Robot designed for robomagellan contest. Didn't even start work on it until a few weeks before the contest. I guess we'll see how well it fails :-P
