October 10th – DPRG monthly meeting

At the October monthly meeting, DPRG member David Anderson will make a presentation titled "Robot Software". The presentation will cover how to construct robot software that will maximize it function, utility, and ease of use. David's balancing robot, nbot, will be used as an example. When building a robot, software is something that can be done well or very poorly. Come learn how to improve your abilities.

November 14th – DPRG indoor competition practice session

Instead of a normal monthly meeting in November, the meeting room will be set up to allow competitors to practice the December indoor competitions; Six-can and Five Spot. The arenas will be in place between Noon and 4 PM.

Rules for Fall Competitions Released

The rules for the November Outdoor and the December Indoor competitions have been released! They can be found at dprgblog.wordpress.com

November 21th, an expanded version of RoboColumbus called RoboColumbus-Plus will be conducted at an outdoor venue. The contest is a challenging test of your outdoor robot's build and your navigational skills.

December 12th, we move indoors with two competitions, Six-cans and Five Spot. Six-cans is a popular gateway competition to the May 2016 Can-Can Soccer event. There has been a lot of trash talk about handily beating the club time record. Five Spot is a new competition that will challenge your robot's obstacle avoidance and navigational ability.

Take a look at the rules and start building your robot!
