    Who does robotics?

    Post by SoulRed12 on 11/7/2009, 3:34 am

    I have a friend who used to do it. He went to competitions and stuff, etc.

    I was just wondering who here programs robots. I also wanted to keep this particular forum section from being empty. ^_^

    A friend of mine at Berkley does. He's the only one I know of. I certainly do not.

    Pretty cool. You should take a video of your robot working and post it for us to see. =]

    Ahh, good idea. When I get one I'll post it up. Our first robot, which is the one we've finished, had many limits... We could only go as far as they'd allow us... So it's not the coolest thing ever.

    But, our second robot, it's gonna be like 150 pounds, with hydrolics, etc.

    I'm currently part of FIRST robotics (FRC Competition for high schools).


    I'm part a LA robotics team and we used to code our robot in C++ but recently (last year) switched to using LabVIEW. It's a mess and a total piece of crap. Nothing makes sense unless you steal examples and study them for days and weeks. We literally coded our robot from tweaking up examples from tutorials. IT SUCKS!!!!!!

    oh also there's a control in the admin panel that lets the forum resize all images to a certain size and be viewed if you hit a button on top of the image which is ... eh here see this

    oooh so that's what double posting is. I thought it was ... hmm i mixed that up with cross posting (posting the same thing in different sections). ok
