[ATTACH=RIGHT]19013[/ATTACH]I will start off by saying that I don’t like to think of myself as lazy, instead I prefer to think that I am much too busy to take the time to complete the more mundane chores around the house like vacuuming and so on. Ok, I’m lazy and vacuuming is boring. Much like any tech-geek, if I see a high-tech way to do something, I tend to gravitate towards that, and when I saw the Neato XV-11 robotic vacuum I knew I had to try it. The XV-11 robotic vacuum cleaner is made by Neato Robotics of Silicon Valley. …

Hey guys, I just wanted to give a shout out for the McGill Robotics team. This is a team of undergraduate students from different engineering disciplines here at McGill. They are participating to the [RoboSub competition](http://www.auvsifoundation.org/foundation/competitions/robosub/) right now! They managed to build and code a fully operational, autonomous submarine robot in less than a year, very impressive. I'm a fan of that team in part because they are the reincarnation of the McGill LunarEx team, which is a robotics team that me and my friend founded back in 2008, and kept going with new students since then, until the Lunar …

First off im sorry if this is the wrong place to be asking. Im looking for some advice on where I should start, heres some background information on my experience. Iv been software developing for several years now working with websites, computer applications and computer games and have an understanding of many computer languages. When I was younger (at college) one of our assignments was to program a cnc machine to create a complex aluminum joint for a steam powered engine and program a micro robot to follow a line. None of which i can remember how to do at …

Dear users of "daniweb" This question has no coding issues but is still about java and java code i thought this would be the best place to post such a question its for my schools Program Dossier. I need a [library or API] that can manipulate a robotic arms motors once "hocked up" to the motor, the code must at least work with my outer java code. Eternally grateful for any help - Adam.

I am doing a Neural Network project as my final year undergraduate project. The idea of the project : A very simple robot with 2 motors, and two ir and bump sensors will traverse a environment with the use of a Neural Network which is in a computer. The main requirement is to observe possibly with a suitable GUI the learning process and the evolution process of the Neural Network. (The main objective is to observe the neural Network, and its changes not to drive the robot). The robot will communicate with the computer using Serial communication in the earlier …

The Segway has been the geek-chic ride ever since its launch. Effortless mobility and the ability to experience the great outdoors (and large indoors for that matter) while retaining a sense of lethargy have no doubt added to its appeal. Every CES I have attended has afforded me the opportunity drudge along with the throngs of other attendees attempting to make my next meeting or exhibit only to be nearly run over by some elitist on his/her Segway. While I curse the Segway pilot at the time, I later admit my enviousness as I finish mile 8 of my daily …

Have you ever envisioned being Robocop? Have you ever envisioned being Robocop with the funding of Lockheed Martin? Enter the hydraulic-powered anthropomorphic exoskeleton known as the Human Universal Load Carrier (HULC), the result of Lockheed Martin’s partnership with Berkeley Bionics that was unveiled earlier today. Like something straight out of a James Cameron movie, the HULC exoskeleton has recently begun eight weeks of rigorous field tests in Afghanistan. The system, comprised of primarily titanium components, offers strength without compromising weight. Managed by an on-board processor, the hydraulics at the leg joints are put into action as sensors all over the …

Another sliver of sunshine in the economic clouds – two of them, actually – as the U.S. service sector shrank in January, but less severely than expected, according to a report released by The Institute for Supply Management. The ISM reported that its non-manufacturing index came in at 42.9 in January compared with 40.1 in December. Analysts had expected the number to come at 39.2. Basically, any number of over 50 indicates growth, and anything under points to a weakening service sector. With thousands of technology companies firmly ensconced in the service sector, a three-percent bounce back up toward the …
