This radio module can act as an RFID device, a key fob, and a wireless serial link. It also has 16-bit cyclic redundancy checking, motor noise tolerance, and networking capability, so it’s truly a robot’s radio.
Create a custom sound co-processor using the Parallax Propeller to augment the audio generation features of your Arduino-based robot.
This time, focus is on the various components of the Robot Operating System (ROS) for our mobile manipulator.

Sensors for Mobile Robots — Part 2: Location and Object Recognition
I decided my first serious Ant would be a drum bot.
This February 17th–19th, the Northeast Robotics Club (http://www.nerc.us) hosted the 10th annual combat event at the Motorama Motorsports Extravaganza and Custom Car Show in Harrisburg, PA.
Robotic enthusiasts with brainy and brawny bots converged on Harrisburg University in March to compete in multiple events at the 2nd Annual Downtown Dogfight.
January 2012 marked the 10th South Florida Insectweight combat event from Gulf Coast Robot Sports (GCRS).
For the past six years, middle and high school students from across Crawford County, PA have been building ever-increasing powerful 15 pound combat robots to compete in the annual Tool City Robobots competition hosted by the Crawford County School District and National Tooling and Machining Association (NTMA) of North West Pennsylvania.
Beetleweights, although a few years younger than their Antweight counterparts, have risen to major prominence in the robot combat world. Weighing in at three pounds they have long been popular with new and veteran builders alike.
The box is locked, the lights are on ... it’s robot fighting time!
