It's been awhile, but i've been working on a few
The robotics club has been getting off the ground, and I had
to work on some other tasks such as the website, making
flyers, posting in different places, promoting, etc. Also
been working on finding a better place to meet. There
aren't many people in the club at this time, eventhough some
have shown interest in the past, but interest has dwindled.
Therefore, more promotions and leg work are needed. In
time, we will build our membership, and the new location may
also be better exposure.
I've also been helping a member getting parts, to
build a robot chassis. He has a Basic Stamp Board, and is
starting to learn, and doing some experiments.
I ordered some samples for the club from Atmel in
microcontroller line. I have been using these for about 2-3
yrs now, and I enjoy working with them for their free tools,
ease of use, and features. So I will also put together some
workshops/tutorials for the club, on how to use these
Progress in terms of actual hands-on work, on
halted for the moment, however I have been doing research on
fuzzy logic and neural networks. Very interesting stuff,
and I'm excited in implementing these algorithms for
UltraMega. More about that another time.
On the other hand, I've been working on a sort of
promotional robot called "HyperBot", for kids who may be
interested in the robotics club. There are some pics in the
club gallery showing its current state, however, I am
currently working on the AVR controller. I will probably add
a project page on this site. More about this another time.
Any ways, I'll update again real soon...
