WHS Robotics Comps

The WHS Robotics group has a series of autonomous robotic competitions each year. Here's videos from those events.

These competitions force the students to think to solve the problems of the competitions. Which is a great thing.

Each team is playing for a pizza party for each monthly event win, and the team that wins the most games wins a college level robotic prize.

Navigate around while avoiding obstacles with ultrasound, infrared light and air pressure based bumper sensors.

Hobbybotics Reflow Controller

7 April 2011:

Wow, it has been ages since I actually posted something although I visit the site pretty much every day.  I ain't (good slang term) making no excuses but, okay, I am making some excuses as I am in the military and I do work roughy 11 hours, 5 days a week (when I'm not traveling).


Note: You can follow some projects some of the time, but you cannot follow all the projects all the time.

Botboarduino drivers

Ok guys it's been a while since I've been on I'm glad everything is picking back up.

I recently had to wipe my computer after getting a virus. Which means I lost all my drivers and code and etc. I managed to get arduino up and running but my botboarduino needs drivers to work. I'm kinda freaked out about catching another virus and I can't seem to find the correct drivers for ft232 uart. I tried one place but it keeps asking me for a password to open it. And when I point the device manager it refuses to see the zip file.
