This month we hear from longtime DPRG member and highly respected robot builder David Anderson, with a presentation titled, “How Waypoint Navigation is Implemented on my Robots”.
With a powerful yet easy to understand style, David’s presentation will walk us through 3 important topics using a combination of design philosophy, implementation, and demonstration examples:
- Motion Control
- Waypoint Navigation
- Advanced Navigation Modes
The meeting will start at 1:00 PM CDT on Saturday June 12th, 2021. You can join the meeting by joining Google Meet at https://meet.google.com/hey-jxuo-esf , or joining by phone +1 405-586-5598 PIN: 682 931 335 #.
