The spring university semester is coming to an end, and the Infotronic course closed with a Sumo robot challenge. Great challenge, new technologies, innovative approaches and funny designs 🙂
Maybe you remember my recent post “Schwanau on Ice” with walking on the frozen Lake Lauerz? I mentioned in that post that there are natural gas bubbles caught under the ice. There is a long (and dangerous!) tradition to burn that gas. That this is really dangerous shows this a short video going viral on ‘WhatsApp’ today:
The past weeks have been extremely busy with the new semester started. As a result, no time for new posts on this blog for nearly three weeks :-(.
Until my projects-in-progress about MQTT, Time-of-Flight sensors, LoRa (long range) wireless networking and a cool robotics project are ready, here is something to share with you all: a cool time-lapse video of my home and work area, created by Pirmin Henseler: 2 years, 30’000 pictures, 2 broken cameras, and the result is amazing:
It reminds me again how beautiful the world is.
Happy Timelapsing 🙂
Students worked hard implementing their robots for the coming Sumo battles. Amazing looking Sumo Robots are the result :-). Have a look yourself:
Happy Sumoing 🙂
The team at the Autonomous Systems Lab under Roland Siegwart has produced the 2014 Robotics Christmas video, enjoy!
Happy Christmasing 🙂
