What is your experience with robots (or electronics, programming, mechanics)?

I've built many robots of all kinds an sizes. I tried to build autonomous vehicles for the DARPA Challenge myself in 2004 and 2005, and was on the U of U team in 2007 while taking robotics classes there.

What are you hoping to learn/experience in this group?

I'd love to meet other people doing robotics in the area.

Would you be willing to host and/or provide tools for a meetup?

I'm a member of the Tranistor in Orem, and could host the group here.

Would you be willing to teach the group a specific skill? What skill would you share?

I'd be willing to share anything I can.


I've been interested in robots since I knew what they were. I had ambition, but no knowledge. In 2001 I drove to California to see Battlebots live, and met some of the builders there who gave me some advice to get me started.
