The monthly DPRG meeting is this Saturday, March 8th, at noon in the Dallas Maker Space. 

The presentation this month is “Useful Algorithms for CanCan Soccer” and will be presented by Doug Paradis. The presentation outline is below:

Useful Algorithms for CanCan Soccer

·         The Problem

·         Navigation

o   Navigation with a differential robot design

o   Tuning (the quick and dirty)

o   Oh my! I’m lost! (Now what?)

·         Acquire and Capture

o   “Seeing” the target

§  Search and Find

§  Drive by

o   Capturing – Keep It Simple…

·         Obstacle Avoidance (We’re going a crash)

·         One more time (how to “stage” actions)

The presentation will outline algorithms, show code fragments, and demonstrate algorithms with a  robot and/or  videos. Presentation length will be ~30 minutes.

Next, the BIG ROBOT PROJECT will update the club by presenting “Big Robie”.

WE NEED YOUR ROBOTS! Please bring any robots and/or projects that you are willing to lend for presentation at the Maker Faire. The robots will be used for display only. The club would like to show as many robots as possible. The monthly meeting is an ideal time for us to borrow your robot without any additional hassle.
