Robots are coming! Let’s be ready to BUILD them 🙂
• Bring a PC AND an Arduino. If you purchased the robotics kit on the 7th, you have a teensy. You’ll need pins soldered onto teensy’s board. You can 1) solder it yourself at home; 2) if you’re a member, and have taken the soldering SBU, solder it @ RG; 3) take the soldering SBU offered at 11am on the 21st – http://www.meetup.com/Robot-Garden/events/221047069/. It’s free to members and $10 for non-members.
• We’ll continue working on the hardware for our ROS ROV. We’ll complete any work we need to do on the magician chassis and documenting the same. We’ll start with some simple Arduino exercises for those unfamiliar with the Arduino. Eventually we’ll be working on motor control.
