A survey to collect project interests and availability
We are working on the group project this meeting. Come help us out if you can. No skills are required and it is highly likely that you will learn something.
• Talk about the project / work on the project
• We have an I robot based robot to work on and a powered chair to convert into a robot
We are going to work on the two robots.
Things on the immediate todo list:
Hack powerchair it be controllable from micro-controller.
Continue to try and get the kinect 2 working.
Start working on some telepresence software and other fun software.
This is a group for people to geek out about robots and build them. We will try to talk about something cool going on in robotics and also work on cool group robotics projects.
Initially we need to find a project to start with. A telepresence robot for the space was suggested. We will see what kind of interests we have when we do a planning meetup.
Even if you can't make it feel free to join the google group for it.
Here are the goals of the meetup.
• Learn about robotics
• Create robots
• Create inspiring additions to freeside (Like the infinity portal)
• Have short timeframes involved in finishing working iterations
• Under 1.5 Month
• Projects relatively cheap
Below are some potential project ideas and some places we can take those robots in software.
Robot with arm/hand
Two wheel balancing robot
Ball balancing robot
Potential Software Add Ons
Legged robot that learns to walk
Robot that learns how to perform some action
Robot really really learns how to do a task - Deep mind’s algorithm open sourced
Tentative Regular Schedule
30 mins - Present / Watch something informative in robotics
After - Plan / Build project
