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?

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 Tuesday 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 Tue 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. -------- And thanks to DIYRobocars for providing robot plans and guidance. https://diyrobocars.com/ Checkout http://www.donkeycar.com for the build information that many of used to get started.

Future of Aerial Robotics by Darryl Anunciado from Action Drone

Aerial Robotics – also known as Drones – are disrupting industries. The adaptation is coming faster than any other technologies, similarly how computers, cars, smartphones, and mp3 music downloads became part of everyday technology. It's up to a good engineer who understands how these disruptive technologies can feel like second nature to the end-user. The company or individual who finds these solutions will be the one to take the biggest market share! So what can you do, or we do, as a group to make sure we take our share? ------- The main door of the building closes at 6:15pm, if you come after that time, please call Hansol at[masked]

PVC Chair Planning Meeting

Robolink

This is a recurring monthly meeting to plan progress of the PVC Chair project. The PVC Chair is an open-source (hardware and software) project to create a low-cost, highly-functional, pediatric power wheelchair for kids up to 50 lbs. The frame is built mainly from PVC pipe and we are using ROS as the software stack. You can learn more about the project here: https://github.com/robomakery/pvc-powerchair Everyone is welcome to attend and participate. Agenda This meeting we will review the updates made by the Capstone engineering team from UCSD. Dylan will bring the updated chair with the hub motors and other updates. We typically head to a local brewery tasting room afterwards :) ------- The main door of the building closes at 6:15pm, if you come after that time, please call Dylan at[masked]
