I've added a few more blog entries on my robot, including a description of the Acroname Brainstem, Windows XP Embeddded, and a few pictures of a new multi-tier chassis I've been hacking on for the past few weeks.

I've added some details on the IO Bus that I'm using for Cylon. I'm combining a 26 conductor ribbon cable with a custom PCB I had made at PCBExpress to allow me to carry 12 signal pairs plus Gnd/+5V between my various chassis levels. For details, see this entry on my blog.

I've started work on a new base for Cylon, one that will allow me to move from an inside drivetrain (repurposing ER1 parts) to an outside drivetrain (based on my Tamiya TXT-1 monster truck chassis). I've posted details here.

I've posted a few pictures of Cylon's hardware and a list of the software components to my blog.

I've recently competed in the Seattle Robotics Society's Robo-Magellan contest with a robot I call "Cylon". Details of the robot and my experience in the contest can be found on my blog.
