Running a company is time consuming, so it's rare that I actually get to customize a robot just for fun, but here is my latest project - 501c. A suped-up ARobot with all the bells and whistles. The goals of this project were:
  • Experiment with artifical life software
  • To test our application notes
  • To test coprocessor software
  • To have some fun!!!
Many people have asked why I named this robot 501c. I'm past president and current member of the DPRG - Dallas Personal Robotics Group. Due to the success of the DPRG and it's growth, some have decided that the group should obtain non-profit (501c) status. I believe that DPRG shouldn't and a lively debate ensued. Hence the name, 501c. Proudly pronounced on the rear name plate.
