Premise: Take an old RC car that has outlived its usefulness, add an arduino possibly a motor controller, a sensor or two and build an Atonomous vehicle that can navigate a basic track.
Goals and Summary:
Atonomous Bots - Born out of the first Arduino classes, autonomous bots are a fun easy project to learn Arduino programming and circuit bending. We race in the parking lot when the weather is warm and the beer is cold.

What you need:
In theory these bots are easy to build. It practice the hardware can be quirky at times an programming for exceptions in your environment can be quite challenging. We have had 2 races this year with more to come in the Spring. Get to the Arduino classes today and begin your quest for Bot racing gold.

We will be continuing build out of our space. Tasks might include framing, insulating, dry walling, mudding, running electrical. If the weather is nice we may do some work outdoors such as parking lot maintenance, hanging lattice, or doing deck work. If you have experience in these areas, please come help us improve our space. If you would like to learn some of these skills feel free to come learn from our members.
