Let's Make Robots!

.NET

CAUTION!!!

This morning I was going to try my "RADAR" project on my beautiful new Panda II. The last time I had carefully put away the board (on an anti-static mat). The board was working fine.

C# and .NET Good websites area.

What would be great is to reserve a topic so everyone can put their favorite websites to share (LMR being first, of course!)

I have found an AWESOME website with lots of C# stuff and links to other great websites.

Everyone check out: http://www.csharptools.com/ you owe it to yourself!

.Net Gadgeteer Powered Object Tracking Robot

Over the past few weeks i've been building a robot using the .Net Gadgeteer platform and blogging about it.

The robot is based on a Rover 5 Chassis, with an ir compound eye and pan and tilt kit for object tracking.

I didn't find too much information on this site about how to use these awesome dagu products with the .net gadgeteer platform so hopefully my experiences can help to make things a bit easier for someone else.

Work HERE on giving some of our robots emotions....

I am not sure why I decided to start this topic on thia area of the forum (other than the fact I REALLY enjoy my FEZZ Mini Robot!!!).

Do you want a robot that runs around the floor and its only job is to not collide with things (some robots do more)??? I want MORE than that! A rather simple simulation of emotion would be really cool and freak out your friends and neighbors!!! Its time for some AI !!!

Others, please join us and help this website do almost as much as some small AI laboratories have done.

I really like my FEZ Mini Robot.

I am totally ejoying my FEZ Mini Robot! I thought the C# code might be hard for me but I am really starting to like that language. It is a "shift" in ones thinking about writing a good program. Now I am sure I would "mix some things up" if I went back to programming on a Arduino.

No fears mate about the C# code running on the FEZ Mini, it works just fine. The build/deploy/debug procedure works, but it still holds a lot of secrets. (The FEZ Mini board sends back "Rebooting..." like your device is acting like small computer!)

Rename forum board?

I was thinking, maybe the forum name ”FEZ Domino” is a bit to specific. Maybe it should be called “.NET based systems” or something like that. So it’s a place for all .NET related stuff, not just FEZ Domino.
