"Introduction to Artificial Intelligence" online course

Stanford univesity is going to make their "Introduction to Artificial Intelligence" course online. I think this could be very interesting for many people building robots. The following is the cite copied from the original announcement here http://www.ai-class.com/:

Mapping of Pins on the Dagu Spider Motor Controller

I made a mapping of the Dagu Spider Motor Controller pins. The cells in red are what you see on the board itself. Other info has been placed adjacent to those cells for easy reference of functions, alternate names etc.

 

Curiously I am wondering if there is actually a typo mistake on the board with one of the pins being labelled as "TXD1/D1" when it should be "TXD0/D1" instead. Is that an error?

 

Please give feedback on the accuracy of the mapping.
