Hello Fellow Philly Roboticists!
That's right - our group now has 104 members (and counting). Hopefully we'll see some new faces at our next meetup (Thur Feb 9). Please let me know if you have anything you'd like to demo or talk about at this meetup. I'll post an agenda soon.
I've talked about this for a while, and now its about to happen. We're working on having the March meetup at NextFab (http://nextfabstudio.com), possibly as a join effort with other groups. The schedule is tentatively set for March 15th at 7pm (not our usual meeting time or day - I had to move it due to potential work travel commitments and the lab's schedule). I'll post the meetup as soon as the date is confirmed.
In the meantime, enjoy these links:
CS 373: PROGRAMMING A ROBOTIC CAR - free online class.
In seven weeks you'll learn how to program all the major systems of a robotic car, by the leader of Google and Stanford's autonomous driving teams.
Swarm of Nano Quadrotors
Our pals at UPenn have a new video, as well as a new company (or at least a new website http://kmelrobotics.com/). They appear to be in the quad design business now.
Drone Technology Reaches New Heights:
Here's a recent podcast with Chris Anderson (of DIYDrones), Missy Cunninghham (MIT prof & former fighter pilot), and Peter Singer Author,"Wired for War: The Robotics Revolution and Conflict in the 21st Century")
