1823Robot Club Meeting In Grants Pass This Saturday
- Apr 7, 2006Roboteers,
MEETING: Southeren Oregon Robotics will have it's
monthly meeting this Saturday (April 8th) at Pizza Hut
in Grants Pass. The address is 1465 Ne 6th St, Grants
Pass. The meeting starts at 6pm sharp!
FREE STUFF: All Phase Circuits in Medford has gone
out of business. They let me do some "dumpster
diving" to get one last pile of printed circuit board.
I'll be bringing a bunch of nice new board to the
meeting to give away to anyone that wants it. Be
there or miss out!
BIG PROBLEM: We had some new people attend the last
meeting that were not sure if we were a Pizza Club or
a Robot Club. All they were seeing was pizza and no
robots! Let's all bring some robots and/or projects
we are working on to prove we're the geeks they were
PROJECT PARTS: I plan to have revised code completed
for the Atmel Tiny12 chip that goes on the main power
supply/control board. I plan on bringing programmed
chips to the meeting for anyone that needs one
($2.00). I will also have complete sets of chips
(Atmel Tiny12, RS232, and RS485) for anyone that needs
a complete set ($5.00). I will be uploading the
Tiny12 code to the project site if you want to burn
your own chip. If you got a chip from me last month,
bring it along and I'll exchange it for one with
PROJECT DEMO: This may not happen, but I'm going to
try to bring test equipment to demonstrate the RS-485
operation on the Main Board (Tiny12). We should also
be able to demonstrate serial communication, which is
something we discussed at length at the last meeting.
This will all depend on my getting the Tiny12 code
done with some time to spare.
PROJECT TOPICS: We will continue discussing our club
project at this meeting. The main topic will be our
communications protocol so please gather your thoughts
on that before the meeting. As always, bring along
anything you are working on for show-n-tell! You are
working on something right?
