Hardware Hacking: Low Cost Mobile Robot Platform using Linux

Date and Time

Wednesday, January 19, 2011 from 6:30 pm to 9:00 pm


MIT Building E-51, Room 395


Mark Woodward


Mark demonstrates his sub-$500 robotics platform


With the abundance of commodity computing hardware combined with the wealth of free and open software, you can build a mobile robotic platform for about $500. All it takes is some left over computer equipment, a child's rinde-around toy, a PS/2 ball mouse, an I/O board, ATX DC power supply, and some ingenuity!
