Re: [SeattleRobotics] Re: Robotics Companies
- I don't have any experience with them, but I have heard of sites like
del.ici.ous and others that have a way of making your bookmarks available to
everyone, using tags to indicate the category. I'm sure there are many uses
for the tag "robot" and "robotics" which have nothing to do with what we are
interested in (stuffed playtoys, programs, video games...), but I wonder if a
tag like "robotic-company" or "robot-employer" is specific enough. Then we all
could tag our bookmarks appropriately and share them via these services.
I'm sure others here know more about these services than I do. Would it work?

list of robotics suppliers. Specifically we do microcontrollers,
GPS, and Xbee links.
But it would be wonderful if it were a commercial site
recognized by everyone as a source for robotics. I'm thinking
something akin to Gordon McComb's Source Book on line. Maybe we
could talk Gordon into starting such a site from scratch. Maybe
he can get a little revenue for listing companies. I think such
a site would be good for everyone, the suppliers, the builders,
- There's a great site that the military has with a database of robot
technology and companies. The site is at https://robot.spawar.navy.mil/
The army also has a good site here: http://www.redstone.army.mil/ugvsjpo/
I saw a bunch of the army's robots at I/ITSEC this year, they have some cool
stuff in use. If only I could get a grant to do my own robot development.
