We reviewed the requirements for the autonomous robot contest and talked about what it would take for us to have an entry.

A benefit of the having a grand goal is that we get exposed to a lot of technologies and products.

Here are some of the items that were mentioned:

 

Other boards:

Acronyms:

  • ESC Electronic Speed Control

 

Buzzwords:

  • Differential GPS (not allowed)

 

Robot Platforms:

Other places or hackerspaces:

  • Metrix Createspace

 

Real World Application:

In 2005, Stanley won $2,000,000 prize by winning the DARPA Grand Challenge, the largest prize money in robotic history. Stanley is an autonomous vehicle created by Stanford University’s Stanford Racing Team. The leader of Google and Stanford’s autonomous driving teams who created Stanley, Professor Sebastian Thrun is showing us how to program all the major systems of a robotic car at the Udacity, the free online course.
