Denver Robot Meeting Aug08

August 2004 Meeting of DARC

Today was a slightly smaller meeting, but that can be expected during the summer months. Most of the working robots were actually just remote control vehicles and not autonomous. But some of the techniques were pretty neat. There was a remote control robot that was designed and built by a 13YO niece of one of the participants in just 2 days. It was very neat.

Another participant brought in legs that he is prototyping for a walking robot.

There was a Handy Board, which I recognized as being a 68HC11 based board.

We talked a bit about my need to get a [working] USB to RS232 solution for my laptop for robotics.
