July 11th – DPRG monthly meeting

Members from high school robotics team Iron Reign and coach, Karim Virani, will share their experiences using gyros on competition robots. The discussion will cover situations where wheel odometry alone can't maintain heading. The use of accelerometers will also be touched on, however the presentation stops short of advanced sensor fusion. The presentation provides a good introduction to these very useful sensors.

After the presentation, Doug Paradis will summarize his adventure at Sparkfun AVC 2015. The DPRG November Outdoor and December Indoor competitions will also be discussed, with an initial look at the rules.
