7 Mar 2002 ROB.T.   » (Master)

Something I've been thinking about lately -

AAAI-2002 Mobile Robot Competition and Exhibition 28 July - 1 August 2002 Edmonton, Alberta http://www.cs.uml.edu/aaairobot/

I brought my partially functional biped to AAAI-1998 in Rhode Island. I had a great time, met some great people, and got a lot of love for my robot even though it couldn't repeat the same first step twice.

So I ask myself -

Can I complete Predecessor to the point I can take it to A3I2 for exhibition? It hardly seems possible, there is so much left to do...

Alright, the deadline for registration is May 1st. Lets see, thats less than 2 months and I've got to run off and get married for a couple weeks somewhere in that time (thats a good thing :-D ). I would have an additional 2 months before I had to actually appear, but I need to go take a couple summer classes too.

What would be the best situation to show up to A3I2? A fully functional robot of course. What would be the minimum I would require? The base module finished with an rf communication link and some demo functions. Don't forget the manditory blinky-LEDs (every project needs at least a few).

OK, in order to consider going to A3I2, I need to finish (or at least be real close to finished) the minimum to participate in A3I2 exhibition. And I need to have this done by the end of April. This is the first hurdle.

Right now I still haven't gotten a leg completely together.

I had better start building!
