Post by: Louis Davis on Feb 07, 2013, 10:44 pm
Austin Robotic Network is a group dedicated to creating free & low-cost robotic opportunities in the Austin area.

We will be hosting a free event:

ARN Demo Day/Line Following Event

At the  Ruiz Library
1600 Grove Blvd.,  Austin

On  Saturday, Feb. 16, 2013
Set-up Demonstrations           12:30-1:00
Public Viewing                         1:00-4:00
Line Following                          3:00-4:00

Demonstrations can be any LEGO construction, any robotic project, or any technology-related project.  All ages & skill levels are invited to participate, teams or individuals.    Demonstrations will be given table space or floor space (as requested).     One demonstration will feature the basics  of the Arduino microcontroller hardware and programming environment, presented by a member of the ARN team.    We expect the Austin Robot Group to bring  robots and demonstrate CREATE.     We will also give out information about our Summer Sumobot competition & summer workshops learn to build them.     This is a community event to help those interested get involved in robotics.

The Line Following is divided into two events:    LEGO only - Two categories:    12 & under, and  13 & over
                                                                             Open Source - all ages, any platform

Rules for the Line Following events can be found at: .
