Special event – MathWorks Robot Autonomy and Control Webinar

This event came up on robotevents and I wanted to pass it along to the group.  This is  a webinar for programming autonomous and working with sensors.  Its a hands on lecture and demonstration for programming autonomous for VEX robotics.  Its a FREE online event intended to help teams get started and perfect their programming skills, explaining and demonstrating how to use simulation and programming for

  • Avoiding Obstacles
  • Moving For Time
  • Dead Reckoning
  • Navigating With Sensors
  • Determining Position
  • Controlling Position
  • etecting Objects

There are two sessions – one on December 5th and the second on January 30th.  Both are from 5-7.  Info to connect to the program stream will come after registration. 

If any of you are interested, please let Scott Barrett know. 

Girl Powered in Troy

Today, 10-14-2018 we went to Troy to speak and listen to the presentation of some other amazing robotics teams, involving what they do and why they are girl-powered. We are Girl Powered because we support each other, and encourage others outside of the team. We got the opportunity to listen and talk about what we love about robotics.

Some members of our team got the chance to drive a working robot for the first time because sadly our robot, Charlie 5.0 is not yet up and running. We were also able to interact with robotics teams from both elementary and high school levels. This was an amazing event and a great experience for our team, that will hopefully be followed by a productive meeting.
