UofM E-Day a Big Success!
Yesterday, the University of Memphis held it’s annual E-Day open house. There were many displays and contests held, but since I was doing a demo on mobile robotics I really did not get a chance to look around.
My demo on mobile robotics was a huge success. I had on hand my Lego NXT (doing line tracking) and the robots built for my Microprocessor Interfacing class (doing sonar collision avoidance).
Also on hand:
Dave Kennedy’s Senior Project – a robot driven over the internet using a OLPC laptop (to provide the control and also the webcam streaming video).
US First “Bluff City Bots” Team 2817 demonstrated and allowed students to drive their teleoperated robot.
