Robocup at Hopkins has kicked off again. Looks like I will be slowly phasing out of the organizational roll and hopefully doing more coding. The students seem like they will need less guidance and pushing from me.
I just joined the Northern Virginia Robotics Group. It's mostly a group of hobbyists. They currently have a project going on that like a "Minature Grand Challenge". The original design was built from a Radio Shack Hummer, but looks like they are going to start building a new custom robot base using a milling machine one of the members just bought.
Still at HPTi doing non-robotics stuff for a living, but seems like we are getting more robotics people in the company. I am now the coordinater of recruiting CMU students to my company, so hopefully I can get even more and reach my eventual goal of working on robotics as part of my job. I will be at Carnegie Mellon's job fair 9/29/05.
