Next Meetup

The purpose of the Oak Hill Robotics Makerspace (ORM) is to provide a publicly accessible robotics makerspace for Northeast Ohio that will encourage and support efforts to increase public awareness, understanding, and implications of new and upcoming trends and innovations in robotics based technologies that have the potential to impact the daily lives of all citizens. ORM provides a public space where individuals can come together to learn how to build, program and collaborate on low cost, open source robots and robotics based projects. It will act as an external space and resource for robotics educational programs & projects at the State Universities, and technical schools and groups, in Northeast Ohio. The NEOACM is committed to being an partner with the ORM by supplying expertise and resources. If you are interested contact: [masked] On Wednesday at 6:30 - 8:00 PM, we will meet to: design, build, and program robots. Are you interested? ORM is located at the: OAK HILL COLLABORATIVE 507 Oak Hill Ave Youngstown, OH 44502 in the lower level. THE PROJECTS The ORM (Oakhill Robotics Makerspace) will achieve its vision by fostering, and supporting several community-based robotics projects. There will be three on going projects: 1. Biennial NEOACM CSI-CLUE Robotics Challenge 2. MCPLP (Mill Creek Park Lakes Project Robotics Video Survey 3. Farm Bots The CSI-CLUE ROBOTICS CHALLENGE is an event that will be held biennially designed to identify practical, safe, open source, and low-cost approaches to programming autonomous robots. The challenge pits new trends in bio-inspired artificial intelligence (Black Box) against classical approaches in artificial intelligence (White Box) to build robot controllers. The challenge will also serve to showcase the innovation, engineering prowess, and untapped talent that we have here in Northeast Ohio. The MCPLP (MILL CREEK PARK LAKES PROJECT) will endeavor to build and deploy low-cost, open-source underwater robots to do a video survey of the bottom of Lake Glacier, Lake Cohasset, and Lake Newport. These convenient natural resources offer an excellent opportunity to explore and possibly innovate underwater robotic applications. We believe that an underwater video survey (using robots) of the bottom of our precious lakes has never been done before and will serve as a interesting and fun project for robot enthusiasts, students, and researchers in the area. We will also perform water quality analysis to supplement and extend current testing. The FARM BOTS are two low-cost, open-source robots, an Animal feeder is a time-based feeder for fish and small animals for various times of the day and the Weeder Bot is a non-chemical based weed removal system.

What we're about

The NEOACM Professional Chapter is dedicated to advancing the art, science, engineering, and application of information technology, serving both professional and public interests by fostering the open interchange of information and by promoting the highest professional and ethical standards.

The goals of the NEOACM is to address these communities of the Northeast Ohio area:

ACM Members
Private/Public Sector Professionals
Computer Science Students
General Community

It is our goal to provide computing services such as workshops, conferences, panel discussions and sponsor events for networking with other professional organizations, Meetups, and community associations. We want to also encourage Software Developers to adopt best practices as established by the ACM/IEE. If you want to be involved in the technology community of Northeast and really make a difference, join NEOACM. For more imformation about our group visit our website at:
