I enjoy all things relating to engineering. I love well engineered consumer products as well as large commercial/military things that come accross my path (for instance: power plants, huge military cargo planes, manufacturing facilities, etc. you get the idea). Currenty I am very much interested in robots. This includes everything from microcontrollers on wheels to humanoid robots. As a part of the Fundamentals of Engineering for Honors program at Ohio State, I was given the opportunity to work in a team of 4 to create a Handy Board based robot to move about a course and compete with other student teams doing the same. This project sparked my interest in robots and computer programming (the Handy Board understands a subset of the C programming language). It also introduced me to product design with Autodesk Inventor. I hope to build another robot from scratch soon. It will be using an Atmel AVR microcontroller (AT90S8535) and thats about all I’ve decided at this point. Does anybody have any good ideas or a “purpose” for this robot? I am also open to making this a collaborative project.
