Event List

  • Silicon Valley FIRST Regional, FIRST Silicon Valley

    The FIRST® Robotics Competition (FRC®) stages short games played by robots. The robots are designed and built in six weeks (from a common set of parts) by a team of high-school-aged young people and a handful of engineers-Mentors. The students program and remotely control the robots in competition rounds on the field. The FIRST Robotics Competition Regional events are typically held in university arenas. They involve 40 to 70 teams cheered by thousands of fans over three days (two days for District events).

    The Stanford Robotics Club is organizing and hosting a Drone Games sponsored hackathon at Stanford University on April 6th to kickoff National Robotics Week. The competition is part of our initiative to promote robotics as a fun and accessible field, provide hands-on experience and showcase the cleverness and technical competence of the Stanford community. About Drone Games Drone Games is a NodeCopter-Style programming competition powered by drones and JavaScript. Hackers will receive one Parrot AR Drone 2.0 so they can work on their project. Here is one of the drones in action. The day of the event hackers will get a chance to present their work to other attendees and judges. Judges Chris Anderson, CEO of 3D Robotics, Creator of DIY Drones Community Star Simpson, Founder of Tacocopter Andreas Raptopoulos, CEO of Matternet Hackers Participation is open to everyone! We hope anyone affiliated with Stanford including students, professors, and alumni will participate. Teams are encouraged! Challenges & Ideas Stanford Students Stanford students participating in the competition are eligible to receive an AR Drone for pre-competition hacking (limited availability). Email us at contactroboclub@lists.stanford.edu for details. Prizes Prizes for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place Judged Awards will be given and there will be a Crowd Favorite award as well! Questions Email us at contactroboclub@lists.stanford.edu -- FAQs Q: Where can I buy a drone? A: You can buy your own AR Drone 2.0 on Amazon or locally here! Q: How do I program a drone? A: You can use any language. However, Felix Geisendörfer wrote a library to control the Parrot AR Drone 2.0 with javascript using node.js. Here are links to Setting Up Your Development Environment and Writing Your First AR Drone + NodeJS Program. Q: Where can I park and how much does it cost? A: Parking is free on weekends. The parking lot at Tresidder Union and Parking Structure 2 at Via Ortega and Panama Streets are both fairly convenient to Building 550.

  • Evil Genius Workshop #3: Killer Robots 2.0 Weaponizing!, LA Makerspace

    Electronics and robotics for the young mad scientist or apprentice level evil genius. Following the success of last month’s Killer Robot 1.0 class, we will continue to develop our deadly bots by adding motors, sensors, and pumps that will give our diabolic robotic devices the ability to squirt evil and dangerous water at annoying aliens, cats, super-heroes, or little brothers. For those who may have missed Killer Robots 1.0, they will have the opportunity to build a simple robot from the ground up using sensors and servos and a programmed arduino for a brain. There is no need to purchase an arduino for this class, but if you’d like to, a full inventor’s kit can be found here: https://www.sparkfun.com/products/11236 Laptops with the open source arduino programming language will also be available, but if you’d like to bring your own laptop you can install the programming environment here: http://arduino.cc/en/Main/Software For any questions or comments feel free to contact Mike Wilson, aka Professor Evil, PhD mdwilson@gmail.com We made a Pinterest Board of Evil Robots to get the evil genius in you fired up: http://pinterest.com/lamakerspace/evil-robots/ Requirements: * Ages 10+. Under 13 must be accompanied by a guardian. * Bring your evil genius self.

    There will be an overview presentation of FIRST (a non-profit organization) and its robotics programs on April 11th @ 5:30 @ Brandman University, 649 S County Center (County Center & Noble). The two key programs being highlighted are FIRST LEGO League (FLL/ grades 4th-8th) and FIRST Robotics Competition (FRC/ grades 9th - 12th). We are looking for parents to help expand the FIRST LEGO League program. Teams can be formed in schools, neighborhoods, and churches. We will be discussing the formation of a district wide FRC team with a target launch date of school year 2014-2015. If your child(ren) is interested in Science, Technology or Math or he/she builds with LEGOS, I encourage you to come and learn about these two exciting opportunities that will help your child(ren) grow in their learning and confidence. FIRST programs can change schools, kids’ lives, and even make adults get a little excited as well.

PiE offers two main resources for each high school team: a full-fledged robotics kit designed, developed, and manufactured in-house and trained UC Berkeley college students as mentors. The 8-week-long competition season culminates in the high school teams competing their robots against other teams' robots in a challenge created by PiE. Scrimmage is the dry-run for the Final Competition, at which teams test their robots on the field against competitors in order to decide how they can improve their robots before the Final Competition.

  • Xconomy Presents Robo Madness 2014, SRI International

    Will you be able to build your next robot at home from parts made on a 3D printer? Will a DARPA contest give birth to a new generation of humanoid rescue or helper robots? And when did Google become a robotics company, anyway? Robots have always excelled at dull, dirty, and dangerous jobs like building cars, finding nuclear-reactor leaks, or exploring the oceans and planets, but now they're turning up in all sorts of new and surprising places, and being groomed to work right alongside humans. They're driving on our highways, moving medical supplies, connecting remote workplaces, and even teaching our children. If the next big frontier for robots is the home, the hospital, or the classroom, what does that mean for the businesses buying robots, the people working with them, and the inventors building them? At Xconomy's third annual robotics forum—hosted by SRI International during National Robotics Week—we'll grapple with the social, economic, and entrepreneurial questions arising as the robotics revolution hits home.
