While in Dallas this week, I joined the Dallas Personal Robotics Group. They have been around since 1984. I have watched them over the past 15 years or so and always wished I could join. After looking at some of the things that people have built that have come from the club, I decided that this was probably the most impressive thing. It is a servo that can be programmed to either be continuously rotating or a standard type servo. It is a neat concept, not that I am a fan of servos much, but it is a neat idea.
I haven't met these guys yet but plan on being in Dallas next Tuesday and will swing by and see if my membership dues were worth it or not. From the videos that I have found, I hope that it was a good (small) investment. Also, I hope to introduce them to EZ-Robot.
https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCsGzeeBTraAts7lMQdfhqtA has some interesting videos. I thought that they did a presentation on SLAM at one point that I had watched, but I haven't been able to locate it. I will let you know what I find out.
