Occasionally something will catch my eye on other Microsoft stuff going on and I wonder if readers would be interested. I seem to see a strong correlation with Project Mangement and Photography – so have posted in the past of photographic things. This time it is Robotics. Robochamps gives people a chance to get in to Robotics development without the investment in moving parts – it is all run with simulation. You will be programming a robotic car to navigate to a series of checkpoints in an urban environment.
Chances to win prizes too, including a car and cash! Software, challenge kits, training materials, and a video podcast focused on the Urban Challenge, can all be found on the website, www.robochamps.com. But I’m an employee – so I can’t play :(. (well I can play – but can’t enter the contest).
