  • Software
    • Andrew Davison (Imperial College) robotics course ([1]). Excellent introduction to mobile robotics.
  • Mechanics
    • Robotics 101 - Set of videos based around the Actobotics set by Sparkfun, good general overview.

Robotics projects


Here's the opt-in list of members and what they are working on

  • Dean not an expert more of a project manager :-)
  • Jon I currently have a small collection of home built and bought robots, including a 3Pi, a scratch build two wheel balancing robot, an antique 6DoF hydraulic arm and a RoboNova biped. I built an autonomous robot for the [SparkFun AVC competition] in June 2013, and I'm helping with the Staubli Robot Arm.
