What we're about

The GTA Robotics is the premier community organization for the advancement of robotics in the Toronto and GTA area. We promote robotics as a vehicle for innovation, learning, and improving quality of life.

Our core values are:

EDUCATION: we are a source for STEM-oriented robotics education open to everyone, from artists to engineers, children to retirees.

COMMUNITY: we are a unifying force for open source development in the Toronto and GTA area.

COLLABORATION: we foster partnerships at an individual and organizational level that lead to innovations in robotics technology and how it is applied to everyday life.

All skills levels are welcome.

This is a group for anyone interested in robotics, automation, autonomous systems, DIY, making, electronics, design, etc.

We encourage designers, engineers, programmers, and artists to come and show their work in this area, and inspire others to get into learning, teaching and making robots.

We want everyone to have fun and experience how easy it is to build robots, from simple smart machines to autonomous robots for home and much more.

This group is a promoter of Learn,Teach,Invent,Make! initiative ( https://twitter.com/hashtag/LearnTeachInventMake )

DIY Remote Controlled and Autonomous Mobile Robots

Online event

This is a series of monthly talks and tutorials to help us learn how to build mobile robots. We will cover techniques for building both remote control and autonomous robots, from small RC smart cars, like Donkey car and JetBot, to bigger projects like autonomous e-karts, telepresence robots, lawnmowers and snowblower etc. You will learn how to use Arduino, ESP8266, ESP32, Raspberry Pi, Jetson Nano, Jetson TX2, PYNQ Z1 and Ultra96 to control the motors/actuators and understand the environment using sensors, including stereo/depth cameras and LIDAR. You will also learn how to use AI (machine learning) techniques to enhance your robots with smart actions, like voice control, visual gestures, follow me, avoid obstacle etc. We will capture the lessons and learnings in the OSSDC Hacking Book: https://github.com/OSSDC/OSSDC-Hacking-Book/wiki/Toy-Size-OSSDC https://github.com/OSSDC/OSSDC-Hacking-Book/wiki/Mid-Size-OSSDC Join OSSDC Slack at http://join.ossdc.org, to continue the discussions there and help each other. If you are interested to present, teach, or showcase a project in this space, please post your name/bio in #introductions channel and a short description of the talk/project on OSSDC Slack in #talks channel.
