October 13, 2005 Meeting
Doug Elliot, VA3DAE
Andrew Mitchell, VA3WAM
Eric Pierce, VA3EP
Since shortly after Eric's presentation on applications of the PIC microprocessor on Jan 8, 2004 Doug, Andrew and Eric have been building experimental Robots using PICs and other technologies, including 30 Terra hertz (i.e. infrared) remote control.
Doug Andrew Eric
The presentation started with a brief overview of the basics of simple robots, followed by details of a certain aspect of each robot's design and construction by the respective builder.
The presentation was well received by the audience.
The meeting concluded with a live demonstration of each robot.
If you missed the presentation or want to review it, it is available here in PDF format (it is LARGE, so probably best to right click and save it to your computer).
You can get more information about Eric's Robot Skippy here.
If you are interested in getting started in building a robot, feel free to contact Eric at this email address.
