Previous Meeting: ParcMeeting20100502

Next Meeting: ParcMeeting20100613



May 16th, 2010 -- 3PM to 5PM



For anyone that wants to, create a good mobile base (chassis) -- a robot that can move around and can have things attached to it.  Do not use all three motors -- keep one available.  Also, make sure the mobile base can easily have other things attached to it fairly flexibly without impeding movement.  



The primary agenda will be...  "Fetch!" Mission Achievement.  At the meeting a mission course will be shown, and it will be up to each team to figure out how to achieve the mission.  Each mission will start from a base, have some form of obstacles, and some target object to retrieve.  Retrieve the target and return to the base.


Details -- Fetch!

  • Break into pairs or triplets
  • Build a good base mobile robot or use the one available
  • For each mission 
    • Study the target object and figure out how to retrieve it
    • Study the course and figure out how to navigate it
    • Try it and repeat.
    • Upon success, demo to club
    • Document whatever attachment you used on top of the mobile robot (you don't need to document the mobile itself), and the program that succeeded.  So someone could do it again.
  • Name your team -- must end in 'over' :-)
