Post New weekly video blog dedicated to robotics, robotics news a
Hi

I have launched a new weekly video blog dedicated to robotics, robotics news and Lego robots, both Mindstorms and Power Functions based.

http://www.moosooboo.com

It's early days yet, and very rough around the edges, but with a bit of time and love I'm hoping to shape it into a great robotics destination. As my budget and skills grow I hope to start mixing the Lego up with some other systems like Arduino and Raspberry Pi.

Would be nice to see you there.

Moo

Thanks to all those who stopped by last week.

The new edition of my weekly video blog devoted to my Lego Mindstorms robots and the latest robotics news is now up.

Marlon, my 4x4 tracked robot based on twin Mindstorms NXT is continuing to take shape. Have a look at http://www.moosooboo.com/marlon-the-4x4-mindstorms-nxt-robot/ and let me know what you think.

I think the mechanicals are about finished for Marlon now, so time to get him a few sensors and get back into a bit of RobotC:-)

I've added Marlon's sensor system now including a 'vision' system consisting of twin ultrasound sensors and a colour sensor, with twin servos to give horizontal and vertical movement to this 'vision'. This readings from this will be combined with the gyro and accelerometer data to give him a sense of where he is in 3D space. The vid is at:

Let the coding begin:-)

Does anyone know any online C language courses so I can brush up my coding skills?
