What we're about

If you like to build your own robots, come join us! Any kind of robot. Maybe small table-top autonomous robots made from Lego Mindstorms kits, or with custom Arduino brains. Or larger custom machined bots with Android cell phones as brains. Maybe quad-copter flying bots.

How about battle bots. Or sumo bots. Or fire-fighting bots. Or?

Let's get together and show off our robots and maybe create a local robotics competition. Or maybe prepare together for national robotic competitions such as at RoboGames.

What do you want to build?

Autonomous Vehicle (RC) - Beginners and Builders (with Beer)

On the 2nd Wednesday of the month we have our monthly Autonomous Vehicles Builders and Beginners event at a local brewery. It is presented by members of the San Diego Robotics group.

The project is DIY and for open source autonomous cars of any size, from tiny 1:28th scale to full-size. Primarily we build cars which use AI/CNN based on the Donkey framework( http://docs.donkeycar.com ).

If you want to start a DonkeyCar Project (Donkey Car), please bring your kits, and we will have experts who can help you out. If you want to just come out and hang out with the club members, pick up a BOM listing, etc you are more than welcome to join us as well.

Bring your bots, your parts, your curiosity and for fun wear a robot shirt if you can, so that we can identify you easily.

Hack and Race-Prep Autonomous Cars

UCSD, Engineering Building Unit 2

San Diego Robotics DIYRobocars Race-Prep Day, Hosted by UCSD.

Please keep in mind that at the Saturdays meeting we expect you to have your robocar built and software installed. I hope you will understand that for us time at the track is limited to once a week for 4 hours. We would like to use it for development as much as feasible.

Please complete your robot build before coming to the Saturdays meetup. See the 2nd Wednesday of month Beginner/Builder Meetup and our slack channel. Then bring your bot and computer to the track.

Please sign-up and come for our monthly Beginners and Builders Meetup before coming to the Saturdays Meetup.

Agenda:
10 :00 am - 2:00 pm. Training and racing

We have built a double lane track with a yellow dashed center-line. Expect a track roughly 30x15 feet, with a concrete floor and duct tape lines.

Don't worry if you are still working things out with the software. We will be on hand to help all get going. This is a great chance to gather training data for you robot. Still figuring out hardware and/or configuring the software on the bot and laptop? Go to one of the 2nd Wed of month Beginner/Builder Meetups.

There will be tables, power, and wifi. Please bring your laptops and bot and be ready to hack.

A special thanks to UCSD for hosting us.

Thank you.
SD DIYRobocars.
