This month we have a special guest presentation by Jesse Brockmann. Jesse, a brand ambassador with Sparkfun, will discuss his multi-year award winning rover and software known as JRover.

The talk will cover everything from encoders, IMUs, RTK GPS, various environment sensors such as LiDAR, mm-radar, ultrasonics, cameras and radar. Jesse will also cover topics such as chassis choices, batteries and power regulation. The presentation will give you an inside look at Jesse’s rover development methods over the last 10+ years, with a fun look at JRover’s failures and successes. Learn what makes for a good rover, and suggestions on how to improve your own rovers.
