Hello! I'm new here

 

Hi there. I have seen a few videos from this website. I've even been told a few time to sign up, so here I am! :) Glad to meet you all! Lots of fun projects on here. I've been looking through the Robots and Blog area, some real neat stuff.

I'm a robot builder also, sorta, kinda. I spit out new ones often, so I may not have time to post them in the Robots section. But I really like the active forum here! I'll probably be around often. 

Here's a few links to some of my robots if you're interested:

Outdoor navigation

Hi all,

Modest as I am, the decision has been made to build an outdoor autonomous robot which will mow my lawn. :-D

The environment:
The garden is 50*50 meter (150*150 feet) with the house somewhere in the middle, completely fenced off with a gate. 2/3rd covered by grass in different sections separated by driveway,paths/house/garage. Altitude difference is 6m (18 feet) between lowest and highest point. Maximum slope is 30 degrees (containing grass). Soil, no rocks.
