First Robotics Assignment

A couple of videos, the first of our robot and the second of another group. Enjoy!!! And here comes the robot of another group, go Junior!!!

First Robotics Assignment - getting close!!

Here you can see the scenario. The robot has to take one cube of each color an put them in line on the right side. At the end there should be 12 lines of cubes of different colors on the right side. Here are two robots. At the bottom is one following the black line and sensing distance to detect the presence of cubes. Above is one trying to load some cubes. Each robot has to do the work by itself, but while we try each group tries its robot on different places. A look from above. The robot on the left is sensing the color of the cubes and the robot on the right is following the black line.  This robot took 3 cubes and is taking them to the other side.

Windows 7 vs Ubuntu 10.04

PC Pro has performed a comprehensive test of Windows 7 vs Ubuntu 10.04 . They've tested and scored the two operating systems on a number of criteria, including usability, bundled apps, performance, compatibility and business. The final result is much closer than you might expect. 'Ubuntu is clearly an operating system on the rise,' PC Pro concludes. 'If we repeat this feature in a year's time, will it have closed the gap? We wouldn't bet against it' Source:  PCPro - read through slashdot
