Preliminary 2D Force/Torque Model for a Hexapod


Regular Robotics Meetings on Thursdays at 5pm (2014 Fall Semester)
Our current Robotics Team Captain - Andy Klyuka - is hosting regular meetings every Thursday starting around 5pm in either our office (SEO 1308) or in the conference room down the hall (SEO 1325). Everyone is welcome to come by even if you just want to observe.

First Robotics meeting of the semester (Sept 19th, 2013, Thursday, 11pm to 12pm @ SEO 1325)
Telemetry team meeting will be at 5pm the same day. Slasher Meetings will start Tuesday, Sept 24th at 4pm. Anyone is welcome to attend.
First Robotics meeting of the semester (Jan 30th , 2013, Wednesday, 5pm to ~6pm @ SEO 1325)

Telemetry team/ robot control meeting on Tuesday, 29 Jan at 5pm. Will be going over the Team Slasher Motor controller and connecting it to our Arduino. Also want to discuss connecting a PS3 controller to an Arduino.


Third Robotics meeting of the semester (November 5th, 2012, Monday, 4pm to ~6pm @ SEO 1325)

Motor Driver Circuit meeting this Monday (11/5/12) at SEO 1325, we will be talking about generating the correct signals for the Mosfets and bjts. Also there will be a quick intro to Bipolar Junction Transistors and Mosfets. If time permits we will be moving towards importing schematics to Ultiboard to define the board layout.

Everyone is welcome!


Second Robotics meeting of the semester (October 18th, 2012, Thursday, 4pm to ~6pm @ SEO 1308)

This meeting will be on motor drivers. Specifically prototyping the logic and introduction to Multisim. Location will be specified in a little bit. Please bring breadboards, breadboard wires and 7408(And gate) and 7404(not gate), 4 leds, (4) 220 Ohm resistors, and (2) 10K resistors if you have them.

Everyone is welcome!


First Robotics meeting of the semester (September 17th, 2012, Monday, 4pm to ~6pm @ SEO 1308)
Everyone is welcome!

Last IEEE meeting of the semester (April 18th, Wednesday, 5pm @ SEL4055)
After the meeting we will watch a movie.

As always, there will be free food!

Programming a Robotic Car - one of FREE CS Courses at
Here is an email I received recently that I would like to share:

"Beginning April 16, Udacity will be offering four new courses, in addition to re-offering CS101: Building a Search Engine and CS373: Programming a Robotic Car. We are excited to have phenomenal instructors teaching these courses. Read through the descriptions below and enroll today!

All classes are available for enrollment at

CS212: The Design of Computer Programs
Peter Norvig will help students develop good taste as programmers by learning how to identify elegant solutions to problems.
CS253: Web Application Engineering
Taught by and co-founder Steve Huffman, this course will cover the things he wish he would have known when starting his websites while he teaches students to build a blog.
CS262: Programming Languages
Wes Weimer, Professor at the University of Virginia, will teach students about programming languages in the context of building a web browser. Students will learn to understand HTML and javascript from the inside out by writing a program that understands them.
CS387: Applied Cryptography
Udacity Professor David Evans will teach students the mathematical foundations behind cryptography and see how it is used to solve problems in computing. It's all about making and breaking puzzles!

All 200-level classes are good follow-ups to CS101 or the equivalent. CS387 requires some additional math background, but does not expect any programming beyond CS101.

See you in class!

Thank you,
