  • FIRST FRC Midwest Regional, UIC Pavilion

    FIRST Robotics Competition is a multi-national competition in which high-school students work side-by-side with science and engineering professionals and other adult mentors, to solve an engineering design problem in an intense and competitive way. Using a standard “Kit of Parts,” a common set of rules, limited resources and time constraints, FRC teams are challenged to design, build, and program a 120 lb. robot to perform the tasks of the season’s game against a field of competitors in a sports-like event, as well as raise funds, design a team “brand,” and hone teamwork skills. The competitions are high-tech spectator sporting events played on fields the size of a basketball half-court, and are the product of focused brainstorming, real-world teamwork, dedicated mentoring, project timelines and deadlines. “Winning” is not solely defined by which team’s robot scores the most points. FIRST also awards FRC teams for their achievements in areas such as excellence in design, creativity, innovation, business / marketing plan creation, gracious professionalism, etc. The FRC program is a life-changing, career-molding experience that is as close to “real-world” engineering as a student can get.

    Happy 12th Birthday Arduino! day.arduino.cc Robot Garden will be hosting a birthday party for the little microcontroller "Arduino". Since the Arduino ecosystem lives on sharing ideas and experiences, we will provide some demos. But this is not an One-Band-Show, so please bring your contraptions along, even if there is still some work needed. If you have a starter kit already (or just an Arduino board), but never got started playing with it, feel free to bring it as well. We did not really get a formal workshop together in the past years, but we have enough people to get you started. So please, if you're interested, leave a comment here at our MeetUp or send me an email at arduinoD16 at bytesalad dot org ;-) Some of my experiments with different Arduinos are here: http://marcoscorner.walther-family.org/category/arduino/ Marco, Fred & the rest of the Robot-Garden band

  • Thinkabit Lab Robocrafting, Qualcomm

    Each day we host 6th, 7th and 8th grade students for a full day, out of school experience to learn about the world of work at Qualcomm and to have a hands on experience with #engineering. Last year students created more than 1,500 robotic creations during our lab season from Sept to May. This year we've already created more than 2,000 robocrafts. Our mission is to inspire future inventors. Our program takes place five days per week during the school year on-site at Qualcomm headquarters in San Diego, California at our Thinkabit Lab. You can learn to build the basics of a robocraft by selecting our event website link to see our "how to" videos to code an LED and Servo or cut and past this link: http://www.uctv.tv/steam/thinkabit/

Technological innovations have been a key enabler in the significant and growing opportunity to deliver new ways of care in skilled nursing and rehabilitative centers, the community and rural areas, home, workplace, etc. Join in the discourse. Goals of this forum: For attendees to inform and foster a dialog around these new ways of delivering and improving care and the opportunities for technological innovations using robotics to enable them. For industry (technology companies, healthcare providers, other organizations focused on the healthcare industry) and WPI researchers (faculty and students) to showcase their innovations to foster dialog and potential collaborations that could lead to commercialization.

    The longest continually operating robotics competition in the world! The National Robotics Challenge is designed to provide students of all ages and levels of study the opportunity to demonstrate their knowledge and understanding of manufacturing processes, controls, robotics and other technologies through competitive engineering contests. Students are judged on their application of technology principles, engineering concepts and their ability to solve real-world problems through a team approach. The National Robotics Challenge is designed to complement classroom instruction and provide students the opportunity to apply classroom knowledge in challenging and fun situations. Each contest is specifically designed to test the students’ skills and knowledge in a particular area of manufacturing, technology, robotics and automation. The event is open to any student in elementary, middle school, high school, or post-secondary school anywhere in the world. Last year over 1000 participants from 9 states competed in the NRC event. Our vision is to become the premier robotics competition for elementary, middle, high and post-secondary school students in the United States.

  • UTRC CDS Seminar: Joao Hespanha, "Control systems in ubiquitous computation and communication", Maryland Robotics Center

    Advances in VLSI (Very Large Scale Integration) design and fabrication have resulted in the availability of low-cost, low-power, small-sized devices that have significant computational power and are able to communicate wirelessly. In addition, advances in MEMS (Micro Electric Mechanical Systems) technology have resulted in wide availability of solid-state sensors and actuators. The net result is ubiquitous sensing, communication, and computation that can be incorporated into small low-power devices.
