Random Robot Roundup

Posted 26 May 2009 at 18:03 UTC by steve Share This

After a long weekend, it's time to empty the editor's mailbox again. IBM Developerworks has posted a tutorial on building and installing the GNU GCC toolchain for the ARM CPU, whether it's in a robot or one of those new ARM-based Android phones. Nancy spotted YouTube video of an interesting solar powered autonomous robot. Amy McKinzie sent a USA Today story on the MIT robot gardner, an engadget story on sandpainting Roombas, and a Robotics Trends story on a robotic factory automation device that injury a human factory worker. Rog-a-matic noticed a strange robot-evolution mash-up video. Howard Gordon sent a link showing how to interface a Nintendo DS console with a Surveyor SRV-1 Blackfin camera. Finally, the Swirling Brain swirled up stories on the Rutgers AUV Atlantic crossing attempt, Soccer robots that have learned how to fall, and a BBC story on robots that behave like humans. Know any other robot news, gossip, or amazing facts we should report? Send 'em our way please.
