5843Robothon Hack Session: Motion Control and Dead Reckoning Algorithms
- Apr 1, 2001Dave Anderson and I will be hosting a pre-Robothon Hack session on Friday
evening, April 27th, at the Seattle Center House, with the topic being
motion control and Dead Reckoning. Dave and I will be showing our robots
and discussing the software algorithms used to control them Depending upon
interests and questions, we can go into the details of PID control,
feedback mechanism, Odometry algorithms and navigation. Also being
discussed is the hardware needed to make accurate navigation possible.
Don't just lurk! This isn't a formal tech session. There is no lecture,
just a couple of robot enthusiasts getting together to shoot the breeze and
learn from each other. Bring in your hardware and software or sketches and
lets compare notes. Anyone trying to control motion, be it a rolling base
or an articulated arm, or navigating a known or unknown environment has
something to gain from this kind of get together.
