There are some smart people involved in robotics. Throughout the United States go to any University and most high schools and you’re likely to find some sort of tinkering, coding, soldering and controlling some sort of robotics contraption. What’s happening is that products like the Arduino and Raspberry Pi have opened up access to low-cost […]
It is amazing how much lowering the center of gravity and overall height of the robot increased speed and maneuverability.
ROBAUTO runs a variety of free robotics engineering workshops. Working with communities to design, test and bring to market robotics prototypes is part of our business. During this process I get to meet a wide range of people of all ages, abilities and backgrounds. And while everyone is different, they all have one thing in […]
BiBli is a new robot prototype which is designed to entertain and educate. It has been developed as part of a collaboration between big industry, educators and parents. Over the last 12 months many students, engineers, and other volunteers have worked towards a common goal: better understand autism. We have a long way to go […]
We’re running a modified version of Ubuntu (one-os) instead of raspbian on our Pi and one of the main things we want to do is get sound to flow back and forth between mic and speaker. We have found that getting sound to work at different volumes and networks and mic-speaker combinations can be tricky […]
We had a great time this Saturday that the Longmont Library. There are some fantastic inventions brewing including a Linux-based “Evil Eye” personal media center and camera system, a self-driving car/sonar technology and our first test of ‘dronevertising’.
We’ve been working lately with the team at the Longmont (Colorado) Public Library to create an program that enables the local community to create new devices and robots for use in making the library more accessible. It’s part of an overall project to make the library more open to individuals and their families on the […]
We’re still working with the autism industry to determine the optimal features of the first autism robot. We do know it will use light and sound – here our device “comes alive” with it’s own heart beat.
During this weeks Pine Castle robotics club we asked everyone to design their ‘dream robot’. Some of these aspiring robotics engineers are not able to even speak but their voices were heard loud and clear. Robots should have faces and robots that look like animals are very cool. We even got stumped by one engineers […]
