Upcoming 2009 IEEE Robot Games
The 2009 IEEE/WCRG Robot games have been announced for May 9th, 2009. I used to be an avid participant, but first school and then work travel got in the way and as such I’ve only managed to make it out once in the past few year.
This year, I’m hoping to have a mini-sumo ready in time, one that I’ve been designing in the back of my head for several months (years?) now. I’ve had some tiny Maxon motors sitting around that I bought a year ago with the hopes of finding time to start this robot, and today took a break from the quadruped to finally start machining the wheels. I’ll try and post details later.
Anyways, if you can make it out to Calgary for May 9th, it’s definatley worth checking out the Robot Games. If you have spare time, make a robot to compete! It doesn’t have to be perfect, it’s more fun building a robot than winning…
