Telepresence Robot Project Meetup | Houston Robotics Club
This is a Houston Robotics Club meetup for the Telepresence Robot Project also known as A.R.I.E.L.
To understand what a telepresence robot is, checkout the following commercial telepresence robots:
• Origibot: https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/origibot-remote-telepresence-robot-w-gripper
• Beam+: https://www.suitabletech.com/beam-plus/
• DORA: http://doraplatform.com/
During these meetups, we will be working on:
• Creating an outline of the robot's code.
• Using WebRTC to develop the host's browser based program.
• Designing the chassis.
• Developing the base circuit.
• Deciding on the battery, motors and sensors.
• Learning from each other
• And more... (Including chatting about everything else in the world)
A.R.I.E.L. - Avatar Robot for Imaging and Electronic Liaison (thanks Eric for the awesome name idea).
Note: This meetup is open to everyone. So even if you missed the last meetup, you can still come.
Houston Robotics Club is an organization that promotes experimentation with electronics, provides a forum for discussion and sharing information, and gives its members a community to participate in and learn about the field of robotics and machine technology. We focus on projects that can be created on a tight budget, as well as large-scale artistic installations that require weeks of preparation and planning. Our group is about freedom of creative expression through technology and the main goals are to have fun, meet awesome people, learn new skills and do all the things your parents never let you do.
