The PWM video is a good place to start because that term gets thrown around a lot at our meets Software - JavaScript for Cats: For those contemplating attacking the Ariel interface code, nodeJS, the language the robot is primarily programmed in, is built on JavaScript. This is its own programming language and not be confused with the similar sounding but different Java language. Here is a link to a website that offers an introductory tutorial for JS. Afrotechmods: This video gives a nice general rundown of what Arduinos are and simple coding for it. The channel also offers good tutorials on broader range of electronic and computer technoloy SONIK ~ Blueprint ( (You will need to register first on Lucid to view)

What we're about

Houston Robotics is an organization that promotes experimentation with electronics, provides a forum for discussion and sharing information, and gives its members a community to participate in and learn about the field of robotics and machine technology. We focus on projects that can be created on a tight budget, as well as large-scale artistic installations that require weeks of preparation and planning. Our group is about freedom of creative expression through technology and the main goals are to have fun, meet awesome people, learn new skills and do all the things your parents never let you do.
