I am just new to robotics. I am a school teacher trying to widen my students understanding of computer technology. my homepage leads to robotic systems from the topic menu where I am creating notes and tutorials on robotics (general, grippers, CAM (for use of robotics). There is also an E-learning section I am gradually putting together at and then choose the course robotics1. You are welcome to have a look as guest or enrol as a student. There are no fees. Everything is free.

I have been upgrading information on my site. I have added in more onformation on a range of topics. There are two sections to the site which I am going to merge eventually


most of the stuff is here w.php?id=5&topic=all

Unfortunately the navigation lacks and you really need to examine all the links. Gradually I am fixing it. I would appreciate any feedback you can. Also if anybody wants to write any articles to add in it would be good. I intend to put more links to videos and articles which people have written in Anyway feedback would be great. perhaps you feel there is a topic which really needs to be covered. let me know.

I must say, I really do feel humbled by the brilliance of many people at this site. There are so many brilliant minds here that I find my offerings to be very small by compariosn however I do offer the new work that I have added to my site in the hope that it will help in the general understanding of robotics.

I have added some new charts and statistics from the international federation of robotics on the growth of robotics in various sectors. It makes interesting reading. There are also links to the original pdfs that the charts were taken from Robotics Course

I have been upgrading my site. I feel that it is much easier to navigate now. I have also included many new notes on a range of topics in robotics. I have included new notes on actuators, sensors, types, uses and Robots in Movies id=5&edit=off

Have a look and let me know what you think. I would really appreciate any ideas, suggestions, corrections etc... I would really like to improve the information to my students. Also If you want me to put links to your site I can also do that but you would need to reciprocate and put a link to my site before you email me.

Been a while since I have written here now. I have added huge amounts on the site since last here. One really interesting person I had the good luck to meet was Hiroshi Ishiguro; the creator of the world's first android.

It was an incredible experience. I did not get to physically see the working model but I did get to be a part of a group of 50 people who were priveleged to listen to him talk about it. We did get to see movies and photos. One of the memorable movies was of the android "Repliee Q2" in a restaurant conversing with other people at a table. It was not obvious which one was the android. The conversation was realistic. The facial expressions and response was very human. Really very incredible. When you click on the hyperlink to go to my site it will ask you to login. easy. If you don't have an account just Click on the button "Create New account". Give yourself a username and passowrd. The site will then send you an email where you will need to confirm your email address by clicking on the link. Click here to go to look at articles and movies about the android. (Repliee Q2).

If for some reason the link does not take you to the right place type in the following URL, < id=5> after logging on to

I still have all the old pages on Robotics and sensors etc... as well.

I am just adding a lot of new material into the moodle pages

I have continued to add more materials to my site. I have many more resources now at:

You will need to login first. If you don't have a login just create one and give yourself a password. You will need to confirmyour details by click on a link in the email which will be sent. Then copy and paste the above link and it will take you to the robot page. Feel free to look around the rest of the site at the same time.
