- In even-numbered months (Feb, Apr, Jun, Aug, Oct, Dec), the meeting will be followed by an
afternoon robot work session (until 5 p.m.). Lunch arrangements for work sessions will be
announced at the meeting but feel free to bring your own.
Our regular meetings are at 10 a.m. on the third
Saturday of each month at Renton
Technical College. See the meetings page for
details on location and directions.
Note that it's always a good idea to check this page before the meeting in case
inclement weather or a holiday forces a cancellation.

- CoroBot Pro -
Lloyd Spencer from CoroWare will
talk about their CoroBot Pro and an upcoming security robot.
- June 21, 2014
- Raspberry Pi -
The Raspberry Pi is a very popular, inexpensive, credit-card-size computer that runs the
Linux operating system. The Pi is also, with a bit of help, an excellent controller for
robotics projects. In this month's presentation, Lloyd Moore will explore the use of the Raspberry Pi,
along with an open source Cypress PSoC daughter board, for building a very functional
robot. The final goal of this project will be to update the SRS robot with a Raspberry Pi,
camera, and Wi-Fi network connection.
This talk builds on several of Lloyd's previous talks and begins to tie them all together
into a functional project. The background will be helpful for this talk; previous presentations:
Getting Started with the Raspberry Pi,
Using the Cypress PSoC Processor,
Using Cypress PSoC Creator.
Monday Night Chat
The Seattle Robotics Society hosts a "Monday Night Chat"
each week. Official time is 7 - 9 p.m. Pacific Time, but people are often
around outside this timeframe as well. Details are on
the Contact Us page.
