I currently have a blog on Blogger (sydbot.blogspot.com) but I think this is a better place for it.

Does anyone know if there is a robotics club in Sydney?

This is my first post, and I'll post details of my adventures into robotics here.

Basically, I have made a base, which is now going to get some sensors mounted onto it - a Sharp IR ranger for collision avoidance, and a SRF04 ultrasonic ranger for mapping/localisation. The SRF04 will be on an oscillating servo to provide a scan similar to radar on war ships. We'll see how it goes. Initially, I'll be using the Renesas M16C 16 bit uC until it becomes apparent that I need more grunt - in which case I have a Philips 2138 32- bit ARM uC ready to go.

My sensors arrived today in the mail (yet to get home and open the box) so we'll see how it goes.

Cheers, Marcin
