See the Resources page to see a whole lot of brand new workshop resources, including the presentation slides, example code, datasheets and required software links from last nights microcontroller programming workshop. Some photos from this workshop have been added too!
Some new information has been added to the project page about an extra optional part of the competition: The main competition day will be on Friday May 22nd, but there will also be a “sprint day” on Saturday May 23rd. It is not a requirement that participants stay the extra day for this event, but [...]
Thursday 2nd of April at 17:00–19:00, GP-S519 A C workshop! Programming is a very important part of robotics, and now we're going to show you the basics of it. The class will focus on basic microcontroller skills like manipulating registers and using interrupts. We'll just blink some LED's and push some buttons, but the idea [...]
We're holding our AGM in a couple of weeks (April 10 from 2-4pm at S408 to be specific). We have a range of positions open, which are listed below. If you are a QUT student, have been a member for at least 6 months, and you feel you are suited to the role(s), send your [...]
The first batch of robot parts will be ordered next week, so groups that have already signed up can look forward to that. Some documentation has been added to the website for those looking to see exactly what we will be working with. If you haven't already nominated yourself or a team, and would like [...]
Thursday March 26 at 17:00 - 19:00 GP - G216 This week we will be introducing fundamental concepts in mechanical design as they apply to robotics, and the use of CAD programs for modelling.
March 19, 5pm, GP-S902 For the past two weeks, we've been focusing on creating circuits on a breadboard, and then designing it as a PCB circuit. Now we're going to solder it (noticing a trend?). Please note that due to WHS requirements, it is of utmost importance to wear enclosed shoes.
If you're interested in participating in a new robotics competition this semester, see the project page for NQRoS.
12 March at 17:00 in GP-S1129 Last week we made a simple 555 timer circuit on a breadboard. This week, we're extrapolating on that by designing a similar circuit as a circuit board.
5 March at 17:00–19:00 in GP-S902 Kicking the semester off with a workshop on circuits, feat. breadboards and 555 timers. Hope to see you there! PSA! Because we are in a lab, please do wear closed-toe shoes. Just a little WHS stuff :)
