Where is Jklug80?
September 9, 2009
So a few have noticed that I have not been on as much lately. Long story short we bought our first house which needed some work. A week prior I decided to go back to school for degree number 3. This time a masters in Computer Science. One class I am taking is Mobile Robotics. Our first project (we present it tomorrow and work on documentation) is a Rube Goldberg type device. The project must use 7 energy transfers from non electrical devices (marbles, dominos, etc hitting each other) and 3 electronic (sensors, motors, etc). We are using XBC which is coded using interactive C.
The second lab requires us to use BEMF or build a quadrature encode for extra credit to play with PID control.
In case anyone is curious here is the robotics link for SIUE. http://roboti.cs.siue.edu/
I will display our documentation, pics and vids of the robots here when I get a chance.
Anyway I had a few people contact me off line asking where I was. I am still around just busy ;) I'm hoping to have more time to play when I get my routine of work, school and work on house down to a managable load. Look out OddBot I'll have a few things headed your way!
